The Altra Escalante’s virtually have no strength-robbing structures, such as arch support, medial posts or heel counters. Therefore, intrinsic muscle and soft tissue activation in the feet aren’t offline in the Escalante’s like they so typically are in most traditional stability running shoes.

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.
