GORUCK Ballistic Trainers
Black / Red

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 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.

Very Uncomfortable
These shoes have no padding whatsoever. They bit into the top of my foot immediately. The tongue also was slipping into the shoe bunching up. It was so uncomfortable walking through the gym I couldn't even attempt a workout. I don't know what people are talking about in these reviews. The look is good, they're lightweight, and appear durable but need padding. Ever since Nano 2 through 9's stopped nobody can seem to get the shoe thing right.

Instantly loved them
From the moment I put these shoes on, I knew they were for me. I've had achilles issues for years so a lot of shoes just won't work for me, so I did some research and saw GORUCK was a lot of people's rec. I see why! They feel great. I'm able to get more comfortable in my lifts, sooner. Better balance, better grip, etc. Highly recommend to anyone considering!

Great all around
I was rucking in boots, then running shoes, these shoes have taken me leaps and bounds farther. I use them for heavy and light loads and whether I'm shuffling or just going slow. They are also perfect for a long day on your feet walking or touring places.

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!

Durable
Writing this after about one year of owning them. They are very durable. They’ve not worn down much from wearing them in and out of the gym settings. I’ve not used them for running, and stick to a specific running shoe for that. I absolutely recommend these shoes, give them a try if you’re in the fence about them.
