GORUCK Ballistic Trainers
Lunar Gray / Gum

To build their new Ballistic Trainers™, GORUCK took everything that works (and nothing that doesn't) about existing functional fitness shoes and combined it with the latest proven science on proper under-foot support. The result is one of the industry’s “most versatile and functional shoes for training in the real world,” according to head product developer Paul Litchfield (owner of more than 160 patents in his field).

The Ballistic Trainer’s 3X Support™ system is particularly innovative, delivering adaptable stability across all dynamic movements. The idea is simple: rather than having just one arch in your foot, you actually have three arches (the medial longitudinal, lateral longitudinal, and anterior transverse arch). And whether you’re sprinting, rucking, or weightlifting, you need support under all three of those arches to not only improve performance, but to help prevent common issues like plantar fasciitis and knee strain. The Ballistic Trainer offers this 3-tier support, as well as a scientifically selected 8mm heel-to-toe drop—a versatile happy medium that creates the best biomechanical advantage when lifting heavy loads (squat, clean, snatch) or moving more than 400 meters (running or rucking).

Each GORUCK Ballistic Trainer also includes a wide toebox for greater comfort, extra lace-lock eyelets to create a tighter heel lock, and GORUCK branding on the interior and tongue. You can check out all available sizes and additional colorways in the purchase area.

Upper - Dual Material Construction
1

Upper - Dual Material Construction

A flexible, breathable warp knit covers the entire forefoot seamlessly, while the lace area, midfoot, and heel are built from two panels of Special Forces grade Ballistic nylon (1680D CORDURA®), offering protection on rope climbs with additional structure and stability in the midfoot and heel.

Midsole - Gradient Density™ EVA
2

Midsole - Gradient Density™ EVA

The well cushioned forefoot area is resilient and flexible with optimal rebound for running, jumping, or performing other explosive movements. When lifting or squatting, the firm heel keeps you grounded on a stable platform, with the 8mm heel-to-toe drop maintaining your center of gravity for a versatile mechanical advantage.

Outsole - Triple Compound Rubber
3

Outsole - Triple Compound Rubber

A high-traction rubber in the forefoot increases grip in any environment; the shoe’s midfoot rubber is formulated from a rock climbing compound for the best abrasion resistance and long term durability (ideal for rope climbs); and the heel rubber is extra dense and tough, designed not to wear down after miles of running or rucking.

All GORUCK built gear, apparel, and footwear comes with the GORUCK Scars Lifetime Guarantee.  This Guarantee covers craftsmanship defects as well as repairs on gear.

Great
Roomy in the toes. Soft edges doesn't feel like I will roll an ankle in these on uneven terrain under load.

So good!
I recently bought a pair of these for rucking after my regular shoes started feeling too squishy for the heavier weights (>50 lbs). They are comfy, stable, and I like the look a lot. Out of curiosity, I tried wearing them while lifting (squats, deadlifts, etc.) and they also felt good for that job, so I ended up getting this extra pair for indoor training.

Great shoes for training at the gym & walking
I purchased these after trying out the runners that I wear to Camp Gladiator. I love both shoes. I have to buy 12.5 wide's (2E) on all my other workout shoes (Mizuno, Brooks, etc.). The trainers and runners both fit without having to size up, still a 12.5 on both. I've put a lot of miles on both shoes and they show no signs of wear. They do get more comfortable after a little break in time though. They even feel great when carrying weight, as advertised! My only small complaint is my feet do get a little hot in them, but totally worth it.

Great fit and solid shoe!
Nice, minimal shoe with wide toe box. Broke in very quickly. Has a nice, flat bottom and grippy. White is nice and gets dirty easy so everyone knows you're the real deal!

A little small for size
These shoes are great for CrossFit, especially when you have classes where you are lifting and running. A great all round shoe! I would go up a size however - they are a small make.

The most comfortable sneaker I own.
Great fit for my foot with 1 caveat. I wear a 10.5 wide or EE on the brannock scale but I had to size up to an 11 for a good fit. The exchange was very easy. I have a relatively high arch and a wide forefoot. Many shoes that claim to have a wide toebox just have an overall large size even in the heel making a sloppy fit, but this is not the case here. The heel fits snug and the foot is secure without undue stress over the top of the foot. Very comfortable and great looking.

Not so good as expected
The shoe was delivered without a second innersole as promised! It is just a shoe, not very comfi on longer walks. The robust Cordura is just on the rear part of the Shoe the front is just some mesh.

Solid CrossFit boot that fits the bill
Bought this Model about a month ago and I have no complaints so far. I‘m using the boots 3-4 times a week mainly for CF and Home Gym activities and as for now the shoe has done well. Would recommend this boot to all, who do not want to wear those flashy boots and instead want to wear something minimal looking with solid quality.
