    Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

    Escalante is by far my favorite Altra shoe so far. I wear them all the time, and even after several months of running, cushioning still feels like new. If I could change one thing, I would make the top material just a bit more breathable for summer, but I love how it feels like a sock - no seams, no chafing, plenty of toe room. These are the most comfortable running shoes I've ever owned!

    Nice shoe

    By Janet

    Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

    I got this shoe after running in the Altra Torin 2.5. They have a nice cushioned feel but they are also light. If I would complain about one thing it would be that the toe box doesn't feel as roomy as the Torin. Good shoe and will probably buy again!

    Rated as moderate cushioning, not enough for me. Other features of the shoe such as toe box, general fit and comfort were great!

    Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

    First pair of Altras and I love them! Feels like I'm running on clouds! Lots of room for your toes so I haven't had any sliding issues running downhill and no blisters! I've ran up to 10 miles in them so far with no issues and I will purchase again when I need a new pair of running shoes.

    Pretty good shoe. I find the toe box to be a bit narrow and my left foot fell "asleep" during my run. Not sure I would purchase again.

    The greatest shoes ever! Light, cushioned, fast! I did have to go up a half size and was sure they were going to slip, but they don't. I also have the Torins and like them too. Amazingly these feel more cushioned than the Torins despite being lower profile.

    Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

    I went to a specialty shop to get fitted for new running/walking shoes. Have been wearing Kayanos/Saucony Hurricanes for a while, wanted to try something new. Well - this shoe is certainly new for me! Found the wide toe box comfortable (if a bit unsightly), and enjoy the lightness of the shoe. I would like a bit more arch and heel support in it - after longer walks/runs I feel the lack of support. Will look for an insole to see if that helps.

    Really awesome shoe. I work out a lot and have lots of foot pain. Also been through lots of shoes, these are the most comfortable for me. They are very light and the wide toe box feels great! This is my 2nd pair! They last very well too!

    Definitely made for motion in sagittal plane.

    By Meagan

    from undisclosed

    Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

    Very comfortable, but wide toe box feels a little sloppy. I have not run in them yet, I got them mostly to wear while I am out and about. I coach soccer and play tennis and was hoping to use these as my shoes but they do not handle lateral movements well at all. My foot slips around too much in the toe box. Definitely made for motion in sagittal plane. I am sure they will be good running shoes.

    I bought these after having foot surgery and wanting to run again. These shoes are pure bliss in my feet! The wide toebox and soft, seamless construction are amazing. I did order a half size larger as recommended and they are perfect.

    Absolutely wonderful for running, for wide foot w/bunions!

    By Irene

    from undisclosed

    Verified Reviewer

    Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

    I absolutely love everything about the shoe, especially the width for me as I have one wide foot and one normal width. Very, very comfortable to run in. It's so light that I forgot I'm wearing running shoes! I normally run 5-8 miles daily, 7 days a week, so time will tell how long these will last. Hopefully, the comfort is permanent though! As far as sizing, I wear 8-1/2 D or Wide in all brands except Altra. I need to go up to a 9. However, this might be the first pair that possibly an 8-1/2 would have been ok, as I do have a little extra front room. But they're so so comfortable, so I just can't chance a smaller size, esp. in warm weather. I would not hesitate to order another pair! I bought the gray. I just thought it was a little masculine looking. I would love to see a better color selection.

    No heel support

    By Janet

    Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

    The heel has no support to keep the heel from slipping out. My ankle moved around while I was running no matter how I tied it. I love Altra, but they missed an important part to this shoe.

    Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

    I love these shoes. This is my second pair. My last shoes were Vivobarefoot Trail Freaks and although I did like running in them since switching to the Altras I am loving the extra cushioning. Both are zero drop so I didn't have to tranisition into these. It feels like I'm running on clouds.

    By Sarah

    Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

    I love these. They're the best shoes. Light weight and fast but with plenty of cushion. I switched to these and the Torins after months of debilitating plantar fasciitis. They allow my feet to move and collapse the way they're meant to. My feet feel better than they have in a long time.

    These are heavenly. I use them for speedwork and love them. They are the most flexible Altras I've had, and they have just enough cushion without feeling too much like a marshmallow. This is a great design by Altra.

    Near Perfect for Troubled Feet

    By Linda

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

    I have multiple foot issues that cause high levels of pain (especially on the top of the arch). The Escalante is wide and the sock-like material is soft enough to eliminate a bunion crush, has good eyelets so I can use U-Lace laces (I only use three individual laces on each shoe exactly where I need them), a soft tongue that decreases pressure on my high arch, and is near-perfect for my foot. I've already purchased 3 pairs. My wishes would be for a little more cushioning and tread. I just hope they keep the design around for awhile and don't try to "improve" it too soon. : )

      Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

      I went to my local running store asking for suggestions on a shoe that I could wear for home workouts to include HIIT or strength training. My running shoes were just too heavy and bulky. The sales rep recommended these Altras. I had never tried an altra shoe and at first they looked a lil funny with the wide toe box, but I appreciate the extra room. The zero drop is great for weight training. The shoes are VERY comfortable! Due to how my feet move, the rep recommended a superfeet insert and that has made the shoe that much better! I cannot attest to how they feel while on the run, but for home gym workouts, these hit the mark.
