Go forward with momentum.

When your body is craving a run with balanced forward posture, momentum, and a natural stride, you turn to Altra shoes to give you the run you never knew you could have. On warm summer runs, slip into the Altra Escalante 1.5 Running Shoe for that low impact, natural run. Updated with a new engineered mesh upper, the Escalante 1.5 will keep you cool through the high temperatures while you rack up the miles.

In typical Altra fashion, the Escalante is fashioned with the FootShape toe box and Zero Drop Platform, assuring ample room for your toes to splay and move, without causing pressure points and discomfort on your joints. Additionally, the Escalante touts an engineered mesh upper that promotes a snug, sock-like fit, and is now more breathable, as stated before, for those extra hot runs. To keep your foot feeling snug and secure in the shoe, an internal strap and sleek heel cup keep your foot in lockdown while the lace closure allows you to make personalized fit adjustments. More importantly though, the Escalante 1.5 is equipped with the ultra-response Altra Ego midsole, which helps you maintain a quick turnover for maximum energy return to keep a spring in your step through each stride.

Walking on a cloud

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I've needed to upgrade my road running shoes for a while now, and I'm glad I picked Altra! The Escalante 1.5 feels super lightweight with it's knit upper, and is one of the most comfortable running shoes I have ever put on my feet. I find that they run small, so I sized up from an 8 to an 8.5. (I wear an 8 comfortably in the Lone Peak 3). The wide toe box can sometimes feel a bit alien, but give these shoes a chance, and you'll see that this is a great feature.

love it

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

good shoes for busy days or exercising the body light and cushioned.

Super comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These are so, so comfortable right out of the box. Simple, sleek styling in black. I am a huge fan so far.

Great Minimalist Shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love all things Altra. I have bunions and had developed a neuroma in my foot, and seriously changed the way I shop for shoes. These are a great gym and running shoe. I had used the Lone Peak model for a long time, but was looking for something with less cushion. I have gotten a ton of compliments on how cute they are which was not my goal but is a plus! I was worried that they might be too small right out of the box, but after I used them for a bit they fit true to size.

Heck yeah! Style points, always a plus. Glad you love these :)

Look Good, Feel Good

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I got my mom these shoe for her birthday and she loved them, but they didn't "go with everything" so now that they have black I am getting her another pair. She loves the wide toe box, and the way they make her feet feel after being on them all day or walking around the city. She loved them so much that she got a second pair in all black!

Roomy Toe Box & Surprisingly Supportive

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought these shoes a few months ago but then promptly got sick and was out for a few months from running and just started up again. I have historically had trouble with my toes bruising and my bunions rubbing against my running shoes, these are the first shoes that haven't caused issues, the mesh top and the weaving really supports the movement of my foot. I was also a little worried about the arch support, historically I need a really supportive shoe and have shied away from Altra's because of that, I was convinced to try out these shoes and they are great, so much cushion for me and I can feel the arch support as I am running. It is less supportive than my typical running shoe and I do notice that my ankles and calves have needed some time to get used to the new shoe but I have faith that it is going to be great for my running in the end. They are true to fit from my old running shoes and I would recommend getting the same size.
