The Escalante 2.0: the shoe you love, but even better.
It started with a shoe in a toaster oven. Golden Harper, an elite runner and running store manager in Northern Utah began experimenting on running shoes and used a toaster oven to peel back the midsole, carve out excessive heel height, and modify the shoe to a “Zero Drop” profile.
Once his customers fell in love with his Zero Drop modifications and saw they helped encourage a low-impact landing, he knew he had an innovative solution to a better run.
Altra has evolved from the inside of a toaster oven to a Top 10 running brand. We are the only running shoe company to provide a complete line of footwear with a FootShape™ toe box and Zero Drop™ platform. Our innovative footwear allows your foot to remain in a comfort, natural position throughout your run and let you run the way you were born to. Give your feet what they deserve in Altra at your local Marathon Sports!
