  • Product Description

      The Escalante Racer is our even faster, higher performance version of the Escalante, only available for a limited time. The upper is firmer, highly breathable and has a lighter heel counter for optimum cornering and comfort on the race course. To top it off, the Altra EGO midsole is a touch firmer for a little more energy return and a little less cush. Each limited edition version is inspired by a major city and only available surrounding its respective marathon.

      Altra Escalante Racer. A superb, simple and swift, speed machine

      These have been my second pair and hopefully not my last. What I love about this model is its simplicity, lightness,wide toe box, mesh upper, zero drop from heel to toe and natural feel. While carbon plates seem to be rage among runners, I prefer a more traditional race flat. They are great for most of my daily runs and I love wearing them for my tempo and sub threshold work. Although not the fastest race shoe on the market, the EGO midsole gives a surprising amount of pop and energy return. The only criticism I have is that they weren’t around 10 years ago. Otherwise great work Altra, please don’t discontinue this model

      Don't know how I could have overlooked Escalante Racers for so long

      Am a 10k and 1/2 marathon runner and gone through - and been very happy with - the Torin series for years. Was quite taken in by the Vanish C, top of my list when I now had to make a supplement, but it simply didn't feel right on the foot: the stack now gone over the top and the forward roll too much for my comfort. And it is not cheap. The Escalante became it - they are just for me: the minimalistic-ness, good ground feel, weight ... and been around for so long the price is right.

      Good product. Excellent Service

      I know the Escalante so there is nothing more about it except "good". The purchase workflow and delivery has been excellent.

      Great shoes

      These shoes have a wide toe box for my toes to spread, a zero drop toe to heel, enough padding to be comfortable and yet still lightweight. The only reason I’m not giving five stars is because for my feet I would like the toe box generosity to be on the outsides (where my little toes are) rather than the insides - There’s wasted space on the insides of my big toes. I recognise this is an issue specific to my particular foot shape though. Overall I love these shoes. Funnily enough when I’m up on my forefoot, my foot moves into the centre of the toe box anyway, so it’s not a problem when I’m running. Oh and the shoes arrived within a day or two of ordering, so thumbs up to Gone Running!

      Review after 200km run

      Spacious toe box and fast response midsole, it is good for easy and tempo run. Nice ride!
