Altra Escalante 3
This lightweight running shoe delivers a responsive, yet soft ride perfect for logging some miles.
Get ready to run in the Altra Escalante 3.
The much anticipated update to this lightweight running shoe, the Altra Escalante 3 delivers with a bouncy, fun ride. The Escalante 3 has an Altra EGO™ midsole for a responsive, yet soft run. It sports Altra’s signature Balanced Cushioning where the stack height of the forefoot and heel are the same—also called zero-drop—for a smooth, natural running stride.
Altra redefined the shape of the shoe a bit, widening it in the midfoot to make it feel a bit more stable. This increases the versatility of the shoe and allows it to be used for running and the occasional gym workout. The Escalante 3 is built on Altra’s original last with its signature FootShaped toe box, making it the widest and most roomy Altra option.
The sock-like upper of the Escalante 3 conforms to your foot, giving you a ton of comfort and breathability. Altra tweaked this upper to provide the best fit possible, giving it a more padded tongue, adding the extra eyelet for heel-lock lacing technique and making it more secure in the midfoot.
The outsole has a bit more rubber on the bottom to increase the durability and make it work in the gym, too. The Altra Escalante 3 provides a smooth, bouncy ride for those long runs, but is lightweight enough to pick up the pace for your tempo runs and speedwork.

These shoes are perfect to help my toes to recover from the "grip reflex" of wearing flipflops for decades. These shoes are helping reduce the pain in my toes.
It’s light and has lots of room in the toe area. The laces go underneath the tongue of the shoe for the bottom two holes. I find this uncomfortable and I’ve improvised by not crossing the laces through these holes. It’s better but not great particularly when I’m wearing them for an extended period of time. I still have marls on my foot.
