The Altra Escalante is the newest Altra Ego shoe. Altra coined the term Zero Drop and was one of the first companies to develop natural running shoes. The Escalante builds on the winning recipe of Altra and takes it a level higher thanks to a sleek design, just the right amount of cushioning and a very comfortable ride overall. Undoubtedly one of the running shoes of 2017 so far!
