GORUCK Ballistic Trainers
Black / Camo

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

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

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

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.

Lifting shoes
These are lifting shoes only. Not good for daily use. Low arch support, not a large toebox. Probably would have good longevity but returned b/c they didn't have arch support or a big enough toebox like advertised.

Best Trainer
Just received these and I’m already super impressed. Just the right amount of heal to toe drop. Stable platform, and good construction. I have a wider foot but not wide enough for a wide shoe. Using these for general weightlifting and a bit of cardio before or after. Good for squats and deads and power and hang cleans. Haven’t done much Olympic lifts in these but they are going to be great. I’ve tried every Reebok and the Metcon and the NoBull. These are better. Lighter, better fit, more stable. Not clumsy at all. Going to get another pair ASAP

Worth the money
I have always used running shoes for working out, but theses are much more comfortable. The slightly lifted heel helps me a lot with lifting too.

Excellent Training Shoe
I've been wearing these for several months now. Around the same time I bought a pair of Nano X1s. I wear my GORUCKS 80% of the time when training (CrossFit). The X1s are better for running, but, for me, that's all.

Great all-around training shoe
I've been able to use these for months now, doing everything from cross training workouts to trail running. They are built well, comfortable and stable. Fit true to my size. My only dislike for the model I ordered (Lunar Gray) is that they look like "old man" shoes, like the kind you see grandpas walking the mall in. Couldn't tell from the website photos, lol.

Pleasantly Surprised!
Great fit, supportive, and they function as described. One of the best things I believe they did in the design of these is the lack of branding! I truly hate having trash written all over my shoes, a giant swoosh, Crossfit logo, or brand name in bold. The subtle design of these is exactly what I was looking for. I ordered my regular Nike/Adidas size in these and they fit great. I am not sure how well these would be for loner distance running-- but for barbell/kettlebell work, hill sprints, short distance runs, complexes, plyometrics, rucking and basically anything else I feel just about anyone would be pleased with their performance.
