Ballistic Trainers in Green – Overview
The forefoot is completed using an engineered warp-knit technology that delivers a seamless one-piece vamp and toe cap while offering areas of supported strength and other areas of breathability and flexibility. The lace area, midfoot, and heel is constructed from two panels of 1680D CORDURA® Ballistic Nylon to offer the most rigid Special Forces grade abrasion resistance against the strains of rope climbs. This 1680D CORDURA® also provides excellent midfoot and heel support during vigorous movements.
Another amazing feature of this trainer is the three-compound rubber outsole that forms a single, seamless rubber outsole. The forefoot rubber is formed for increased grip, while the heel area is solid and won’t wear down after miles of running or rucking. The midfoot is formed from a rock climbing compound and solidified for outstanding abrasion resistance, making it perfect for rope climbs. The high rebound and flexibility EVA in the forefoot provides cushion and support for explosive movement. At the same time, the firm, stable EVA in the heel offers a sturdy platform to keep you grounded when lifting or squatting.
The 8mm heel-to-toe drop in the Ballistic Trainers™ makes the best biomechanical advantage when lifting heavy loads (squat, clean, snatch) or moving more than 400 meters (running or rucking). Our foot has three arches, and the dense PU foam insert is custom-made to fit the foot’s contours, supporting all three arches. The wide toe box is a plus factor in getting this shoe as it allows your toes to breathe. The added space, along with the breathable and flexible knit, lessens the friction that can happen if your feet scratch against the insides of your shoe.
Ballistic Trainers in Green – In Summary
That’s our close-up look at the Ballistic Trainers in Green.
You need a steady platform and more support from your fitness and weight training shoes if you want to move past your boundaries in garages, driveways, fields, and on asphalt. To make this shoe, GORUCK took each part of the shoe and examined it — built it and rebuilt it over and over to assure they will support you no matter what you’re doing or where you’re doing it. The result is a shoe for functional fitness with the proven science of proper underfoot support.
