Altra Escalante 4, Men's


Made in Vietnam


The fan-favorite Altra Escalante 4 returns and is better than ever.

With a new engineered knit upper for a soft, sock-like fit, this zero-drop trainer is lightweight and flexible to handle everything from daily walks and fast training runs to everyday errands and workouts.


  • Upper: Altra updated the engineered knit upper for a forgiving fit along with a knit tongue for all-day comfort. The Escalante 4 features Altra’s Original FootShape fit that gives you plenty of room for your toes to move freely.
  • Midsole: The Escalante’s EGO™ midsole foam gives you a responsive and connected ground experience for confident running. The InnerFlex™ midsole is composed of grid-like grooves designed to provide flexibility and movement.
  • Outsole: Less rubber and Altra’s FootPod™ technology reduce weight and improve flexibility to help the shoe move naturally with your foot.

What’s New
Altra simplified and refreshed the Escalante 4 while preserving what fans loved most from the iconic 1.5 and 2.0 editions. A new engineered knit upper and knit tongue give you a sock-like fit while less rubber in the outsole reduces weight. Altra also updated the footbed for added comfort.
Who It’s Best For
The Altra Escalante 4 is a minimalist trainer that’s lightweight enough to pick up the pace, but comfortable and durable enough for all-day wear. Runners with wide feet will also love its Original FootShape fit which is Altra’s roomiest toe box.
Why You’ll Love It
Anyone trying out the Escalante for the first time will love it for the same reason fans have been returning to it for years: the wide toe box, slipper-like fit and connected ground feel make it a daily workhorse shoe that’s equally perfect for working out as it is for hanging out.
