Escalante 2.0 - Optimized running shoe for men
Altra's best debut ever is back with subtle tweaks. Altra increased the decoupling in the Altra EGO™ midsole and outsole for more flexibility. A new knit with more perforations has increased the breathability while still maintaining that classic Escalante comfort but with a more secure fit for better performance. Altra has also added a new long lasting PU insole and a new Dri-Lex® Dri-Freeze heel liner to provide a more comfortable and better on foot feel.
