Altra has taken the Escalante 1.5, Altra's best-seller in history, and revamped the upper to make it even better. The brand new upper is more breathable, highly reflective and features a sleeker heel cup for increased performance and comfort. Fresh color patterns coupled with the wildly popular Altra EGO midsole give this shoe an unbeatable, elegant, high performance look and feel.
Tighter heel cap for better performance
Special ladies cut
Large toe box, so that the toes can unfold naturally and have better stability
Outsole modeled on bone structure to naturally support movement
The 'neutral shoe' or 'cushioning shoe' is equipped without pronation support (the lateral support of the foot). These shoes are therefore suitable for runners who have regular rolling behaviour, i.e. who do not roll their feet inwards or outwards when running. The neutral shoe can be used for competition, for fast training and for long endurance sessions. The damping may vary depending on the application: in order to achieve more direct ground contact during competition, it is advisable to use only a slightly cushioned shoe. When training on hard surfaces or for long distances, more cushioned shoes offer better comfort and protect the joints.
