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.

Can't live without them

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.

Great design and perfect cushion

By Laura

Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

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.

    Need to wear a few weeks before a race

    By Annie

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

    I started walking first in these as this was the recommendation to break in due to the curved and spacious toe box. I walked/ran in these 2 weeks prior to a half marathon. I think I should've waited as I did feel some ankle pain but overall very light and responsive.

    Room for my toes!

    By Julie

    from undisclosed

    Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

    These shoe are very comfortable and have nice cushion for a shoe geared toward natural running. The best part is the toe box. I don't have wide feet, but often have issues with running shoes that are too narrow in the tow box, leading to blisters on the sides of my big toes. Not with these shoes!!

      Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

      First let me say Altra is my regular brand. I'm all about the zero drop and wide toebox and enjoy many of their running shoe models. The Escalante is above all the most comfortable running shoe, even in the Altra brand, that I have put on my foot! Wide in the toes, not sloppy in the heel, lots of cushion yet I can feel the road really well. Buy 'em!

      Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

      When I first tried on this shoe I was not in love. Thought it might be a bit big and just wasn't crazy about the feel. But I thought I would take some time and give them a chance. I really like the look of them. So glad I kept them. I can wear this shoe all day and they just feel so good. No foot pain whatsoever and my feet stay cool. Planning on getting a second pair in another color. They have plenty of toe room and even though I felt they were too big out of the box after a few hours of wear it is like they were made for my feet. I would say they are true to size.

        Comments about Womens Altra Escalante Running Shoe:

        I LOVE these shoes! I have had problems with squashed toes when running, so the wide toe box on the Altra Escalante is amazing. These are my first low/no drop shoes, and my feet acclimated to them quickly. I've only used them for short (3-5 mile) runs so far, but am confident that they will remain my favorites throughout marathon training season.
