ESCALANTE 4 Training, Racing, Walking

Take your road run back to the basics with the lightweight Escalante 4 road running shoe

Simplified and refreshed. Altra built the Escalante 4 as a nod to the fan-favourite Escalante 1.5, with FootShape fit, greater flexibility, and a lighter weight.

Tackle fast training runs, daily walks, or everyday errands in this streamlined and versatile road-mile destroyer. It’s got an engineered knit upper for a more sock-like and forgiving fit, with a knit tongue, just like the original Escalante.

They evolved the rubber midsole for a lighter weight and more flexibility so you can feel connected to the road. A new footbed feels more like the iconic Escalante 1.5 and 2.0, with the same Altra EGO™ midsole foam for responsiveness and comfort. Move the way you were designed to with a roomy toe box to help your toes move freely and zero drop.

How did we pack so much comfort and style into such a simple shoe? Lace it up, take it out, and see for yourself!
