GORUCK Ballistic Trainers
Black / Gum

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.

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.

Best fitting shoes
These are the best fitting shoes I've ever had. The way the midfoot is designed gives the feet plenty of support. These are not as wide as they claim to be, but when laced tight around the midfoot, the toes don't spread out much so the toe box width is plenty enough. I use these as everyday shoes and bodyweight lifting shoes so the cushion was a little too firm for a couple of weeks, but after broken in, feels perfect. I can do everything better in these, walking, leg exercises, even kicking up into a handstand has been better since I've started wearing these. I got the Black with gum outsole and was pleasantly surprised by how sleek they look in person (I'm not a sneakerhead so my standards might be low when it comes to how shoes look). I find that the laces slip a little but I don't know if they laces are slippery or I'm just not tying them right. The flat insole vs. arch support insole is best used for getting the right fit. If you have wide-ish feet like me, I think the flat insole will actually make the shoes fit better. For narrow low volume feet, you'll probably need to use the arch support insole. Shoes are true to size. I wear 9.5 men's in almost every brand and the same size in these is perfect. Would buy again.

Pictures don’t do these justice!
Bought these a few weeks ago, and can’t say enough good about them. Quality is very high, colorway looks better in person than the photo. Very comparable to my Nike Metcons at a cheaper price point.

Fell apart after a few weeks!
The fit and look of these shoes were great! Wore them to the gym about 8 times, and the sole peeled off! I thought it was just a fluke, and purchased some shoe goo and repaired, but a week later the other sole peeled off. Not great quality for the price you are paying.

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.
