Altra Escalante Review for Forefoot Running

Altra Escalante Review for Forefoot Running

Relatively lightweight and low-to-the ground, the Altra Escalante has almost full throttle flexibility with generous underfoot protection, making the shoe a safe and comfortable cruiser for long runs on harsh or smooth roads as well as light, even-leveled trails. I also love that the outsole feels plush and bouncy, giving an impressive motion return, making your stride feel energectically spring-loaded. Read my full Altra Escalante review here!

"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.
