Altra - Escalante 2 Road Distance Running Men - Black Black
Our best debut ever is back with subtle tweaks.
We 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. We've 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.

ZERO DROP™ PLATFORM
Places your heel and forefoot the same distance from the ground to promote low-impact technique, naturally align body posture and strengthen lower leg muscles weakened from running on elevated heels.
An outsole designed for your foot makes sense doesn’t it? Our road shoes feature FootPod technology that maps the bones and tendons of your foot to provide a natural, easy flex. This sets us apart from the predetermined flex of other shoes that force your foot to move the way the shoe does.
FOOTSHAPE™ TOE BOX
Allows the toes to relax and spread out naturally and the big toe to remain in a straight position for more stability and a powerful toe-off to maximize running performance.
FIT4HER GENDER SPECIFIC DESIGN
Women’s feet are anatomically different than men’s feet. Women have a narrower heel and mid foot, higher instep, longer arch and unique metatarsal spacing. The Fit4Her technology means we customize every women’s shoe to the unique shape of the female foot .
Grid-like flex grooves in the midsole allow your foot to flex where it needs to for more speed and better performance. Unnecessary midsole was removed to create the flex grooves, making the shoe incredibly light and fast.
