GORUCK Mid Top Ballistic Trainers

Lunar Rock / Gum 

The mid-top version of the GORUCK Ballistic Trainer raises the collar for extra ankle stability, adding to a design that already delivers unmatched arch support.

According to GORUCK’s head product developer Paul Litchfield (owner of 160 patents in the field), the Ballistic Trainer is one of the “most versatile and functional shoes for training in the real world.” The shoe’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.

Wear Socks
The trainer is really nice but did dig into my leg as I don't wear socks. They also run pretty big so keep that in mind. I have a wide foot and high arch. Normally I wear a 12 sneaker needed to go down a full size. I do really like them as a trainer.

Solid
Solid gym shoes, best fit for me. The fit at the top and the length of the laces are annoying as a working party though.

Tough trainers!
I bought these ballistic trainers for outside circuit training in all kinds of weather. I really like the wide toe box as I have wide feet (too much rucking in the infantry) it gives me a stable platform even in wet weather. The material stands up too abuse in sand and rock overall a really solid trading shoe.

Glad I tried em
I have never been one about gear. I’ve been lifting for over 10 years and never use belts, etc. Recently I had started developing knee pain everytime I tried to squat. So overwhelming it was ruining my work outs. My doc chalked it up to tendonitis and my friend kept insisting I try powerlifting shoes. I figured why not. Once I started using these all knee pain was just gone. I was able to squat deeply and effectively again. I bought these because they were one of the cheapest options. They don’t feel cheap though. It was a good buy and I recommend them to anyone who wants to try lifting shoes but isn’t convinced they need to spend a ton of money.

Great training shoes
These are a great training shoe if your into rucking or CrossFit style of training. They are one of the most comfortable training shoe I’ve ever owned. They even feel great to my feet when I do short runs or sprints. Also they are very durable. Glad I bought these.

Go Ruck Ballistic High Tops
I’m a huge for of Go Ruck boots these are my fourth pair. I mainly use these daily everything. I have a low cut pair for training. These shoes have a very supportive base, your foot is well cradled. Great for lifting, light hiking or whatever you have in mind. They are tough and clean up super easy.

Best shoes in a long time
I bought these after a review from As Many Reviews As Possible. I have weak arches and need supportive footwear. I do daily walks in these from 2-5 miles with no pain. Wore them to Disneyland all day with no foot fatigue. I use them for Metcons and they're fantastic. Big fan of GoRuck as a company and everything they represent.

Best trainer out there
These shoes are hands down the best. Can’t be beaten in performance or comfort. Wear them in the gym 6 days a week for the last couple months and no signs of wear yet. Definitely a shoe a lot of effort went into and it shows.
