Altra Women's Escalante 1.5 Shoe - 2019
The Escalante was such a hit that it's hard to imagine it getting better, but believe it or not, it did! The 1.5 version features an updated knit with 360 degree reflectivity, increased breathability, tongue stay, new color patterns and sleeker heel cup. This new upper coupled with that same powerfully plush feeling of Altra EGO™ under foot creates the perfect combo of high performance and comfort.
FOOTSHAPE™ TOE BOX
Altra's FootShape™ Toe Box toe box allows the toes to relax and spread out naturally and the big toe to remain in a straight position for maximum stability and power.
ZERO DROP™ PLATFORM
Every Altra shoe features a Zero Drop™ Platform that places the heel and forefoot the same distance from the ground for natural alignment and a low-impact landing.
Dual-Nature midsole compound with a responsive, yet soft feel for increased energy return.
An outsole technology that actually maps the bones and tendons of your foot to help it bend and move naturally.
The Fit4Her™ technology means we customize every women's shoe to the unique anatomy of the female foot.
- Weight: 6.5 oz / 184 g
- Insole: 6 mm Contour Footbed
- Platform: Fully Cushioned Zero Drop™ platform and FootShape™ Toebox

I love the 1.5 and wish they stayed with it instead of changing it and bringing in the 2 and 2.5! Whenever I find a really good and comfortable the companies go and IMPROVE it. I just might have to find a different company for my running shoes.
I love this shoe for short distance racing. Comfortable and fast.
