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.
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.
