GORUCK Ballistic Trainers
Ranger Green / White / Coyote

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.

Almost perfect.
Loved everything about these except sadly they were too narrow. The quality was good. I loved the style, color, and the material so much I was really bummed when they didn’t fit. Maybe if I got a 1/2 size larger than my shoe size, but I’m not sure. I was surprised since they were advertised as wide toe box. Really wished they worked out. Instead I had to give them away cause I worse them thinking they’d work so I can’t return them.

Nice shoe, sizing is weird 🤷‍♀️
Took two tries to get a workable size . Previous reviews suggested going a 1/2 size down (for women) I went with my regular unisex 6.5. That was too small. Next try was 7.5- much better. 8 would probably be ideal…. Shoe is comfortable. Supportive for what I need with rucking. Not my current thing but feels like it would be good for general CrossFit type training.

Own 2 pair of the high tops black and lunar
Bought my first pair about 2 years ago and right out of the box these fit great. I have a very wide foot with an adequate arch and these shoes fit like a glove. I wear them for WODs, lifting, rucking (I have a pair of their rucking boots as well) i also wear them with jeans or other pants and they don't look like "sneakers" I'm not a fan of wearing sneakers with any kind of pants. I was lucky enough to get the hi tops before they were phased out. Great shoes for just about everything one can do throughout the day. I most definitely recommend these to everybody. Those who've bought a pair after I recommended are very happy with their choice.

Seems very durable, extra pair of laces & inserts
After 1 week's use, these are great shoes -- rucking (so far just 15lbs), strength training -- these shoes appear very durable and look great too. Size seems just right, but next pair I'll go up a half size (try 10's instead of 9.5's)
