GORUCK Mid Top Ballistic Trainers

Black / Camo 

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 (see standard low collar version here).

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.

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 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.

Great item
I really like the high top shoes and decided to get this. I'm comparing this to the Altama OTB shoes which I feel is a close comparison to it. To me, the biggest, and probably most biggest difference between the two is the sole life. On my OTB, I gone through 1 pair that has the sole completely rubbed off where everything is nearly completely gone. I got my second pair shortly before finding the goruck and that too has started to get noticeable wearing on the bottom soles where it was fading to the point of being a flat surface. These GORUCK shoes do not wear! At all. And I tried. I ran a 15 miles trail with them (in a wooded trail that has roots, rocks, and various other surface). I ran the streets, did lifting, and these shoes were abused way worst than my OTBs and not a single wear on the sole. I also completed a murph yesterday with 2 miles running on the roads with weighted vest. Not a single wear on the bottom soles. These things are built tough! I also like the fact how flexible these shoes are compared to the OTB. It almost feels like they could rip apart but they are very tough. The only downside to these is, in my opinion, it doesn't have toe protectors but that is okay. Not really a major point. Also it comes with two inside soles so you can wear it sort of supported for running and whatnot, and a flatter one for lifting. I kept it to the factory one where it's slightly supported and found to be the best all rounder. Overall I highly recommend these shoes. They are the best shoes I owned thus far and I wear them to crossfit everyday.

Awesome Fit, Excellent Support
Supa happy with the shoe. Prior to training shoes were killing my feet, had no idea how bad the old shoes were until I started training using GORUCK Mid Top Ballistic Trainers. Feet are on the mend, back to training 7 days a week. Living the dream.

Best. Shoes. Ever.
In almost 9 years of CrossFit, I've tried all the flavors of shoes -- Reebok Nanos, Nike Metcons, Nobulls, Innov8 ... They are amazing! Solid on rope climbs today. Gripped the rope really well. Wore them for WODs all week and they are light and comfortable with good ankle support. If you are looking for a 2 me, from me with love Christmas present for yourself, check these out. I have narrow feet and normally wear a 9.5 ladies shoe and ordered an 8 mens.

Not bad but.
It is a little tight in the heel that I found a bubble after training on my heel... so painful. Other than that all good
