Altra Offerings

Altra Escalante web buttonDid you know Big River carries Altra? If you aren’t familiar with the brand, Altra shoes are known for having a FootShape toe box, which allows the toes to relax and spread out naturally and the big toe to remain in a straight position. Altra footwear is also designed to be full cushioned zero drop, which allows for a natural balance that aligns the feet, back and body posture for less impact. 

Altra recently introduced a brand new shoe – the Escalante – which we now have at Big River West County. You’ll love the sleek aesthetics on the Escalante with its engineered knit upper and sock like fit. But sometimes it’s what is on the inside that counts. Altra equipped the Escalante with a new midsole compound called “Altra Ego” to give the shoe great responsiveness, energetic rebound and minimal ground contact. 

We also carry Altra’s Lone Peak, which is designed for trail running and hiking, and the Torin, which is perfect for the roads. Here’s what Big River fit expert Dan (featured below) says about the Lone Peak: It’s almost like Altra’s were made for my foot. The zero-drop design and a wide foot-shaped toe box makes for a comfortable fit. There’s also just enough of cushion and tread to handle technical trails. My Lone Peak’s are usually waiting in the trunk of my car and also a bit muddy.” If you haven’t experienced the feel of an Altra, visit Big River West County to try them on today!
