Altra Escalante Review for Forefoot Running

Altra Escalante Review for Forefoot Running

The Altra Escalante is warm for winter running, trouble is, its outsole is smooth and tractionless. Luckily, the Escalantes can be transformed into a beastly, dependable snow/ice running shoe thanks to DueNorth wearable ice spikes which are lightweight, feels fast and delivers solidly reliable aggressive traction, helping you roll over the snow like a tank!

"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.
