Last post on the 2017 Altra Escalantes. To wit, still love them after 200 miles. For me about 200 miles is pushing it. The insoles are pretty much flat where the front balls of my feet hit the ground. But do understand I’m a super heavy #notarunner even at my current 253# at the time of this posting.
I added a pair of Super Feet orange insoles I had laying around to them but the difference in thickness is just enough to throw off the fit for me. I’ll keep these around for shorter runs but I’m going to swap in my back up pair of Escalantes for long runs.
I’ll pick up another pair or two to get through this year and then next year when they go on sale due to the 2018’s dropping I’ll very likely pick up 10 pair or more to get me through 2018 and 2019, and possibly 2020.
Final thoughts? Try them, buy them, love them. But at least try them.
