The Escalante was such a great shoe that it's hard to imagine it getting better, but believe it or not, it did! These Altra Men's Escalante 1.5 Road Running Shoes feature an updated knit with 360 degree reflectivity, increased breathability, tongue stay and sleeker heel cup. This new upper coupled with that same powerfully plush feeling of Altra EGO underfoot creates an excellent combo of high performance and comfort.
The FootShape toe box allows your toes to relax and spread out naturally for more comfort and stability in uphill climbs and downhill descents. A Zero Drop platform places your heel and forefoot the same distance from the ground to encourage proper, low-impact form throughout your run. InnerFlex grid-like grooves in the midsole allow your foot to flex while being lighter, for more speed and better performance. The Escalante’s feature FootPod technology, an outsole technology that actually maps the bones and tendons of your foot to help it bend and move naturally.
