The Escalante was such a hit that it's hard to imagine it getting better, but believe it or not, it did! The 1.5 version features an updated knit with 360 degree reflectivity, increased breathability, tongue stay, new color patterns and sleeker heel cup. This new upper coupled with that same powerfully plush feeling of Altra EGO under foot creates the perfect combo of high performance and comfort.

Altra Escalante 1.5 reviewBy: Darwin on 23 November 2018Started using this style of shoe whilst changing my running technique ie. more upright running style with higher cadence. Can feel better blood flow on the sides of my feet due to the wider foot box and knit flexibility as well as good energy return from the zero drop sole. My feet feel really naturally splayed out with better lateral control. Wouldn't take it on the trail, fantastic shoe for the urban jungle.
