Altra Escalante | First Look

Altra Escalante Men’s Sample (subject to change)

Available February 2017 – MSRP $130.00

With a soft yet responsive ride and a sleek upper design, the Altra Escalante offers a new option for tempo days. Utilizing a Zero Drop platform and footshape toe box Altra is known for, the Escalante will offer a lighter and quicker feel compared to the Altra Instinct.

In order to provide a fast and responsive feel, the Escalante utilizes the new Altra Ego midsole material. This new compound provides a slightly softer underfoot feel with higher energy return than the A-Bound midsole found on most Altra shoes. Also, the use of an InnerFlex design for reduced weight and great flexibility allows the Escalante to provide a dynamic ride.

For a sleek look and comfortable fit, the Escalante utilizes an engineered knit design with an Altra PFS performance last. This addition should provide a snug, sock like upper fit through the midfoot while still offering plenty of room for your toes to splay.
