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

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.

Look great, but not as described
I bought these specifically because they advertised a generous toe box. Not at all the case. A generous toe box is like a pair of crocs! I expected something a bit less than that of course but these feel just as tight as any trainer does. I hope they loosen up. I'm afraid to go up a size because as far as length it isn't needed.

Best yet
Giruck macv family are so comfortable under load for miles with packs over 50 pounds. Gear footbed with a generous toe box. True to size.

Good workout shoes
I bought these over a month ago and here are the pros and cons. Well constructed shoe and back eyelets allow for gripping of the heel when doing exercises such as pushing a sled. The sides are heavy canvas and provide plenty of support. Because of their sturdiness they take a little time to break in. More heel drop than I like for squatting or dead lifting but have become used to it. Overall, better made than most store bought purchases and I would purchase again.

great shoe, comes w/ 2 sets of insoles
These trainers are great....they have a slightly higher heel drop than the Nano X2s. I like the fact they come w/ 2 sets of insoles. One gives more arch support for flat feet

Daughter loves em, solved some knee issues
Bought these for my daughter. She was training in hikers and experiencing occasional knee pain. Swapped these out and the stable soles really helped. No more reports of knee pain, they have held up really well to her training schedule. Highly recommend.

Purpose built
I tried 6 different types of trainers. My workout is mostly suspension training and bands with some functional some functional exercises. I liked the stability of these and the more physiologic heel to toe drop. Love these! Also look great. I got the Navy, White and Coyote color.

These are great multipurpose shoes
I bought these knowing nothing about this particular brand. I am very impressed with these shoes and they have held up very well in the gym. To be fair I mostly do weight training, not a ton of cardio so I can’t speak for running in them. Walking has been just fine. They are nice all purpose shoe that you can use inside and outside of training. They feel very comfortable, not too stiff but enough to feel supportive. No complaints.
