Description

The Altra Escalante is the fast responsive shoe, with the feel of a bedroom slipper! You will find it hard to find a shoe that offers you that feeling of Get-Set-Go, whilst making you sigh as your foot settle inside the engineered knit upper and rests on the ultra-comfy new Ego Midsole which has superior energy return attributes. At 182g in weight and a stack height of 25mm, the cushion to weight ratio is impressive. An ideal shoe for anyone wanting to work on speed workouts or someone who is looking for that faster marathon shoe that offers a moderate level of cushioning whilst offering flexibility allround.

The good old workhorse

I have been running in the Escalante for about a year-and-a-half and have thoroughly enjoyed them. My current pair are sitting on just short of 1,700km and apart from the sole in the toe area showing some wear they look as good as new. I am confident that the EGO midsole will outlast the rest of the shoe every single time and they feel pretty much as plush as they did on day one. If you are looking for something to use for anything from short speed workouts up to around 30km races (although I know of runners who marathon in them) these are a solid choice. Word of advice – as with all Altra shoes the toe box is fairly wide and that, coupled with the stretch in the upper, means that it’s probably a good idea to go at least half a size to a full size smaller than you normally would.
