(Logan, UT — July 10, 2018) Altra’s award-winning Escalante road shoe is such a hit that Altra updated the Escalante 1.5 with six new colors for men and six new colors for women, ranging from neons to neutrals. Color options for men are black/white, silver, dark blue, neon yellow/blue, red and gray/yellow. Color options for women are black/white, gray/green, heathered gray/black, bright pink, blue/navy and silver.
Other updates to the Escalante 1.5 include 360° reflective hits for increased visibility, a more breathable knit upper and a connected tongue that stays put without bunching. The 1.5 version also adds an internal midfoot strap and sleeker heel cup for a more secure fit.
Altra kept its proprietary EGO™ midsole on this shoe to provide bouncier cushioning with greater energy return that Escalante fans love. With a stack height of 24mm and weighing just 7.8 ounces for men and 6.3 ounces for women, this shoe is the perfect combination of high performance and comfort.
The Altra Escalante 1.5 retails for $130 and is available now on www.AltraRunning.com and at your local specialty running retailer.
While working at a running store, Altra Founder Golden Harper was frustrated that modern running shoe technology caused poor running form and had not decreased running injuries. His passion to create a shoe that followed the science produced Altra’s FootShape™ toe box and Zero Drop™ platform. Since its founding in 2011, Harper and co-founder Brian Beckstead have grown Altra from one to 25 shoe styles, winning multiple Editor’s Choice awards and distribution in more than 60 countries.
