GET STRONG, PAIN-FREE

Soft and squishy shoes make weak feet - over time this causes ankle, knee, and hip pain.

The Ballistic Trainers Triple Arch Support reinforces your arches so you can strengthen your feet.

An 8mm heel-to-toe height is designed to reduce strain and puts you in the best position to generate power while lifting.

LIFT WITH CONFIDENCE

The Custom Heel Counter, Upper Lace Lock, and High Traction Forefoot securely lock your feet in place, creating a stable base to give you confidence under heavy weight.

A Flexible Warp Knit with High Rebound Forefoot supports your full range of motion for unrestricted movement.

ALL DAY COMFORT

So comfortable you’ll forget you’re wearing them.

Removable High Density Inserts are custom made to fit the contours of your feet with Triple Arch Support for all day comfort.

The Wide Toe Box reduces friction and lets your toes breathe.

"I am truly shocked..."

"I've had plantar fasciitis for a couple of decades and now
I don't have to use my orthotics. The best sneakers I’ve ever put on my feet. So comfortable!"

BUILT GORUCK TOUGH

Made to GORUCK quality standards with durable, military-grade materials and no compromises.

Wrapped with Ballistic woven fabric, tough enough for anything you throw at it, with a high abrasion Rubber Heel compound that won't wear down.

A tightly woven Engineered Warp Knit provides reinforced strength and flexibility when you need it.

MADE TO LAST

Ballistic Trainers are constructed so you get more mileage over time.

The midfoot rubber is formulated from a rock climbing compound for rope climbs and long term durability.

A precision Force Bonded Adhesive System is 3.57X stronger than industry average, making it a “diamond” engineered shoe.

I wasn't satisfied with the support I was getting from other shoes. I chose these shoes because I trusted in the brand to deliver a high quality, well supported shoe that will last me a lifetime. I am VERY happy with these shoes. I dig the simple design, the materials feel high quality, and it delivered on everything it promised.

The best training shoe I have ever owned. I am a disabled veteran, 28 years of combat arms. I have struggled with shoes to wear in the gym. For the first time in 20 years, I do not suffer from shoe related pain when I do strength training! Thank you GORUCK.... instead of wishing I could take my shoes off, I can now focus on my training.

These shoes are awesome. Totally bombproof, exactly what I needed for all around fitness shoes. Great looking, straightforward high quality product.

★★★★★

Very surprised. Was expecting a gym shoe. Has taken over as my favorite all around. I’m on my feet all day. I regularly walk past 10,000 steps. I like these better than running shoes, better than Altra.

★★★★★

Battle buddy for your feet! Comfort and stability beyond measure. I wore them all day long and enjoyed every minute of them, from work to the gym they out performed any other training shoe I’ve used in the past.  Get these shoes if you're serious about foot comfort and punishing workouts, they won’t let you down.

As someone who basically lives in the gym everyday I have gone through countless amount of shoes. These by far are the best ones I have ever owned. GORUCK has a new loyal customer for life.

I was expecting something like metcons, but these are so much more. Run 4 miles, no problem. Squat heavy, no problem. Walk the nature trail at the park, no problem.

An outstanding trainer shoe (outstanding as a regular wear shoe!).They're built like tanks - extremely durable yet flexible for various movement patterns. Love them so much I bought a second pair!

JODY D.

GORUCK Ballistic Trainers are my perfect training shoe. They fit perfectly. I can wear them all day without fatigue. They are incredibly stable for heavy lifting, yet feel light, agile and forgiving during cardio activities. To top it off they are built to last and last. I've finally found a training shoe I can trust and recommend without reservation!
