GuideRails support keeps you in your preferred stride when you need it. GuideRails empower your foot’s natural range of motion — because there’s no right way to run, just your way to run. When you need them, GuideRails engage to keep your shins, knees, and hips in their preferred alignment. So you and your shoe work together to keep you in your stride. All runners benefit from some kind of support, but we don’t need it all the time. GuideRails intervene when you could use a nudge back into your preferred stride. GuideRails technology starts with the knee. When the knee is happy, so are your feet, your hips, and back. And when that’s all happy, so is your run.
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.
