One of my favorite forefoot running shoes, the Altra Escalante, are so comfortable, yet deliver a very fast, incredibly responsive feel that they will definitely help you excel at your next 10km, 1/2 or full marathon race. Even though the Escalante is armored with a thicker, highly durable outsole, it’s still impressively lightweight and zippy which makes the shoe feel just like an aggressive road racing flat. Also, you’ll love the ergonomic and functional fit (wide in the front, flexible throughout), making the shoe a perfect utility to engage your feet, especially your toes, in a more functional manner as compared with narrow, conventional footwear.

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.
