Lighter, faster, and more responsive than the original Escalante, the Escalante Racer is supercharged for peak performance on race day.

In order to create an even springier ride, the shoe now features a firmer EGO midsole that is stripped down to offer a low to the ground design. Paired with an Inner Flex system and zero drop platform, the shoe delivers a natural running experience with enhanced flexibility. To further reduce weight, the shoe receives a thinner, race-oriented upper. The snugger design helps create optimal midfoot lockdown at faster paces while a wider mesh improves overall breathability. Finished off with a stickier blown rubber outsole, the Escalante has all the essentials when you decide to go fast.

The Bottom Line

Speed, all of it

A tool to work on mechanics, efficiency and foot strength


" This shoe is for those used to zero drop looking for a racing shoe for long distances.  Some may be able to use this as a slightly cushioned lightweight trainer, but most should use this as a racing shoe that can handle a variety of distances from 5k to marathon.  I hope Altra revamps their current racing shoe line and includes a ultra lightweight shoe with EGO instead of the Vanish (which I returned to them being bone crushing firm and having sub par durability).  For the moment, this is a great racer that will fill the racing needs of those looking for a long distance zero drop racer."
