Need a shoe for tough cross training workouts? (Like CrossFit?) Be sure to take a look at the excellent Ballistic Trainers in Green – new from GORUCK.

Combining with the proven science of proper underfoot support, the Ballistic Trainers™ was built by taking everything that works (and nothing that doesn’t) about existing functional fitness shoes. These shoes are the best workout shoes for men and women and are the new standard in functional fitness footwear with 3X Support™ and 3X Stability for all three of your arches.

The upper of the Ballistic Trainers is made from tough Ballistic Nylon with breathable and flexible knit, while the midsole has a flexible and cushioned forefoot, and the heel is firm and stable. The outsole has triple compound rubber—grippy, high-traction forefoot, hardened midfoot, and thick, durable heel. All these elements and features make the Ballistic Trainers the best workout shoes for men and women.

The Ballistic Trainer is GORUCK’s shoe for the gym – or outdoors:

Ballistic Trainers in Green – Overview

One of the reasons why this trainer is durable is because of its engineered warp knit and CORDURA® Ballistic Nylon upper. This provides a smooth one-piece vamp and toe cap while offering areas of reinforced strength and other areas of breathability and flexibility. The lace area, midfoot, and heel is constructed from two panels of 1680D CORDURA® Ballistic Nylon, offering the most solid Special Forces grade abrasion resistance against the pressures of rope climbs.

This 1680D CORDURA® also delivers exceptional midfoot and heel support during dynamic movements. The supportive, injection molded heel counter anchors your foot and stabilizes your heel when you’re doing active, load-bearing exercises. This trainer has extra top eyelets that can be used to build a secured heel lock to stop heel slippage and exaggerated movement around the ankle. Your feet swell over time and distance training at the gym and anywhere. But thanks to the wide toe box of the Ballistic Trainer.

The additional space, along with the breathable and flexible knit, decreases the abrasion if your feet rub against the insides of your shoe. The dense PU foam insert is custom-made to fit the outlines of the foot to support all three arches. It has an 8mm heel-to-toe drop that forms the best biomechanical edge when lifting heavy loads (squat, clean, snatch) or moving more than 400 meters (running or rucking). The forefoot rubber is crafted for improved grip, while the heel area is thick and won’t unravel after miles of running or rucking. The midfoot is crafted from a rock climbing compound and hardened for superior abrasion resistance.
