Say hello to Altra's stripped down Escalante Racer New York Marathon Special Edition road running shoe.

"Altra took its popular Escalante and tuned it for even more speed, and the result is the limited-edition Escalante Racer. This souped-up version comes with a stiffer, highly breathable upper and a lighter heel counter. While the midsole is still constructed with EGO foam like the original Escalante, here it’s formulated to be firmer and provide more energy return, so you can really kick up the tempo."
