The original Escalante is a fan favorite for Altra lovers everywhere, and the women's Escalante 2.5 brings back many of its features people know and love. Comfortable, casual, and capable, this updated model is ready for all-day action.
The updated sock-like upper is lightweight, breathable, and supremely comfortable. The midsole combination of Altra EGO™ and InnerFlex™ offers a soft, responsive ride with added flexibility for an overall improved performance.
From long walks to short runs, light jogs to long laps and everything in between, with the women's Escalante 2.5 you can do it all, all day.
Our take: With a bit less cushion than some other Altra models, the Escalante offers great road feel for the minimalist runner. A larger expanse of rubber on the outsole suggests greater durability than similar shoes in its class. We think this makes a great gym shoe.
Note: Jumping into zero-drop shoes will work your calves hard until you become accustomed to them and adapt to a midfoot or forefoot strike.
