Altra Escalante Review for Forefoot Running

Altra Escalante Review for Forefoot Running

A lighter, more functional version of the traditional running shoe, the Escalantes have a roomy, flexible toe-box that engages your toes to splay for added balance stability during running.

In my opinion, the Altra Escalantes are completely dedicated to helping runners run with better form and the shoes really give a comfortable foot-hugging, form-fitting fit that also provides lots of under-foot cushioning without feeling cumbersome on paved surfaces.

"I believe the forefoot strike is the engine of endurance running..."

BSc Neurobiology; MSc Biomechanics candidate, ultra minimalist runner & founder of RunForefoot. I was a heel striker, always injured. I was inspired by the great Tirunesh Dibaba to try forefoot running. Now, I'm injury free. This is why I launched Run Forefoot, to advocate the health & performance benefits of forefoot running and to raise awareness on the dangers of heel striking, because the world needs to know.
