Altra Escalante Review for Forefoot Running

Altra Escalante Review for Forefoot Running

The outsole materials of the Escalante helps you maintain good dexterity, drives a faster toe-off and is impressively responsive, helping bolster a more smooth, faster transition throughout the cycles of running gait, which collectively is handy for executing a faster turnover.

Not only is the outsole on the Altra Escalante comfortable, springy and responsive, it is built to last!

"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.
