The ultimate in softness and supreme comfort. Superb cushioning pairs with a plush fit to create the premium Brooks Glycerin 17.

Category: Neutral Cushioned - Intended for runners who have a higher, more stable arch that does not pronate excessively(roll inwards) or may even supinate(roll outwards). Neutral Cushioned shoes offer very little or no structure or pronation support and are generally more flexible than stability shoes. Runners who require a neutral shoe tend to notice more excessive wear on the lateral(outside) side of the soles of their running shoes. Neutral shoes can vary from lightweight and minimal cushioning to maximum levels of cushioning depending on the needs and preferences of the runner. Runners with high/stable arches tend to notice pain on the outside(lateral side) of their shins and knees and may also battle plantar fasciitis if not wearing a neutral cushioned shoe.
The DNA LOFT cushioning provides a soft, luxurious feeling underfoot without losing responsiveness or durability, while the OrthoLite sockliner provides premium step-in comfort.
The DNA LOFT transition zone makes every move from heel to toe feel incredibly soft and smooth.
The plush feel of an internal stretch bootie surrounds your foot and moves and expands with your stride. The engineered mesh upper and 3D Fit Print technology only enhance the fit.
With the Escalante 1.5 we've taken Altra's best-seller in history and revamped the upper to make it even better. The brand new upper is more breathable, highly reflective and features a sleeker heel cup for increased performance and comfort. Fresh color patterns coupled with the wildly popular Altra EGO™ midsole give this shoe an unbeatable, elegant, high performance look and feel.
Altra | Escalante 2 | Women's
Our best debut ever is back with subtle tweaks. We increased decoupling in the Altra EGO™ midsole and outsole for more flexibility. A new knit with more perforations has increased the breathability while still maintaining that classic Escalante comfort but with a more secure fit for better performance. We've also added a new long-lasting insole for a better fit and feel.
