Altra Escalante Review for Forefoot Running

Altra Escalante Review for Forefoot Running

Credit to the upper’s durability goes to the material density which is pretty thick, especially at the lacing column, but does not compromise the weight of the shoe, nor will it cause your feet to cook in the heat.

The Altra Escalante is a great road running companion that works and moves nicely with the contours of your foot and delivers a quick, confident ride in cold and hot temperatures.

"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.
