Fast, lightweight, zero drop shoe

By Mary

Verified Buyer

Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

I am a runner constantly in search of the perfect fit and feel. I decided to try this zero drop shoe, my current shoe is a 6 mm drop. I'm pleasantly surprised at the cushioning, and how this shoe encourages a forefoot strike and better posture and form. I feel faster in them though it is early in the process of switching to zero drop, and I am following the suggestion of alternating with my current shoes to get muscles used to zero drop. As I am getting used to them I have really begun to appreciate the wide toe box and the whole fit and feel of the Escalante.

Amazingly comfortable Altra Escalantes!

By Elise

Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

Super comfortable shoes for tired, painful feet that endure a forty hour work week on cement floors. Recommended by my podiatrist because of the wide toe box, good cushioning, and stretchy non-restricting fabric the shoe is made of. I'm so thankful to have found Altras, and especially the Escalante style. It's literally the only shoe/style I can wear.

Never buying another brand of shoe, ever again.

By Katie

Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

I was in the market for a pair of shoes that didn't kill my feet after a good workout. I went to a local run store and tried on many that could possibly fit the bill.The escalante that the employee brought out were pretty colorful. At first glance I thought they were hideous but once they were on my feet... Pure heaven. To be honest I've never bought a shoe that has cost that much and left the store determined to look around. I found Road Runner and the shoes were a great price that I couldn't pass up. I will never buy another brand of shoe. These are amazing. I bought them in black and I'm already looking for a Altra trail shoe for my upcoming camping trip.

Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

I really like my new shoes but I'm still getting used to them. They are good looking (as good as they can be :)) and are light and make me feel like I'm running like the wind (no, not really). Nice job, Altra!

Great lightweight yet cushioned zero drop shoes!

By Diana

Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

Only worn them twice and I am working my way into them with the zero drop, but so far, I am a huge fan. I love the cushion, the light weight, and the feel. They are super comfortable and I always get blisters with almost every shoe but not with the Escalante's. Definitely take your time adjusting if you are not accustomed to zero drop shoes

Comfortable shoe but mind the toe guards

By Kathryn

from undisclosed

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

I use this product to run; I'm training for a marathon. I'm a forefoot striker, petite and weigh 126 lbs. I run almost entirely on streets and feel most comfortable in shoes that offer plenty of forefoot cushioning. I found these shoes perfectly cushiony and flexible. Unfortunately, the toe guards (the small pieces of plastic that curl up from the sole) are directly in front of my big toes and this caused problems on a recent 3.5-hour run. It is no fault of the shoes how much my feet swelled but because of the toe guard placement, my right big toe started to strike the guard. Ouch! I intended to run 4 hours but stopped because of the discomfort. I tried on a pair that is 1/2-size bigger but my toenail still taps the guard and right now that is too painful (about 72 hours after the aforementioned long run). Everyone's feet are different; on mine my big toes happen to be the longest toes and the guard placement just doesn't work. If I had started my run in size 9s, I might have had a different experience.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
