Get ready to run in the Altra Escalante 3.
The much anticipated update to this lightweight running shoe, the Altra Escalante 3 delivers with a bouncy, fun ride. The Escalante 3 has an Altra EGO™ midsole for a responsive, yet soft run. It sports Altra’s signature Balanced Cushioning where the stack height of the forefoot and heel are the same—also called zero-drop—for a smooth, natural running stride.
Altra redefined the shape of the shoe a bit, widening it in the midfoot to make it feel a bit more stable. This increases the versatility of the shoe and allows it to be used for running and the occasional gym workout. The Escalante 3 is built on Altra’s original last with its signature FootShaped toe box, making it the widest and most roomy Altra option.
The sock-like upper of the Escalante 3 conforms to your foot, giving you a ton of comfort and breathability. Altra tweaked this upper to provide the best fit possible, giving it a more padded tongue, adding the extra eyelet for heel-lock lacing technique and making it more secure in the midfoot.
The outsole has a bit more rubber on the bottom to increase the durability and make it work in the gym, too. The Altra Escalante 3 provides a smooth, bouncy ride for those long runs, but is lightweight enough to pick up the pace for your tempo runs and speedwork.
