Altra Escalante 2 – Women’s
The Altra Escalante 2 is a lightweight, zero drop running shoe that has been updated for increased comfort and support to make picking up the pace a breeze.
This lightweight, uptempo running shoe was one of Altra’s best debuts, and now, the zero drop shoe has a loyal following. Known for its comfort and responsiveness, the Altra Escalante 2 has undergone some refining tweaks for improved fit and performance.
- Reinforced upper for a more secure fit
- Added perforations for better breathability
- Increased decoupling in midsole and outsole for more flexibility
- New PU insole for a softer underfoot experience
In this updated version, the Altra Escalante 2 keeps its Altra EGO midsole, but the addition of flex grooves in the midsole and outsole allow for a smoother, more performance-driven ride. The redesigned upper provides a more secure fit through the midfoot while the FOOTSHAPE design still allows for natural toe-splay. Finally, a long-lasting PU insole provides a softer step-in feel with just the right amount of squish making the Altra Escalante 2 the most comfortable version yet.
