GORUCK Ballistic Trainers
Black / Black

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Great shoe but...
Got these for my birthday - use them for hiking, kettlebells and walking my big dog - super - and would have given 5 stars BUT they are very narrow! Please get a version that is WIDE in the toe box - I've laced them to accommodate the width but not the same - and don't say buy a larger size - they are then too long. Otherwise, I love them!

GREAT shoe but...
I was given the shoes for a birthday present. I use them for kettlebells, hiking, and walking the dog. GREAT shoes! Unfortunately, I can only give 4 stars because they are TOO NARROW! Why are these shoes made only for people with narrow feet?! PLEASE put in an option for WIDE. And don't say to size up - then they're too long.

Good support
Good support and style. Unfortunately, the left shoe squeaks while walking. The other one is quite as you would expect it to be. Usually not a problem in a loud gym, but annoying when wearing them out in public.

Decent shoe for basic stuff and the street
Decent shoe, tad too pricy for what you get imo. comfortable and works well for basic lifts and verticals jumps. Would not run in this shoe at all. Walk on flat ground is fine. Street shoe yes. Absolutely no lateral support at all. Foot will slide side to side of doing any lateral movement as it’s just a flat sole with fabric material exterior. Not super wide but wider than Nike typically.

Perfect shoe for training
Based on other reviews I thought I would give the GORUCK Ballistic trainers a try and I’m glad I did. These shoes work well for all aspects of my training including squats and deadlifts.
