Altra Escalante Review for Forefoot Running

Altra Escalante Review for Forefoot Running

I highly recommend the Altra Escalantes for putting in long miles on the road and for doing tempo and interval runs on the roads as well as road racing distances ranging from 10-km to the marathon, and even beyond!

Probably the only disadvantage of the Altra Escalante is the sensory deprivation from the thick, soft underfoot materials, may make extreme trail running risky business. Other than that, the Escalate’s have a whole lot to offer for impressively handling the roads and flat, easy, light trails.

"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.
