The Mackall Trail Shoe is Purpose-built for Rucking

Hikers, trekkers, backpackers, and hunters, these shoes have been built specifically for you.

The Mackall All Terrain Rucking Shoes from GORUCK combine some pretty impressive features:

  • A knit polyester upper reinforced with TPU that is both incredibly lightweight (just 230 grams per square meter) but incredibly tough. It’s also quick-drying and highly breathable.
  • A stable, supportive midsole that staves off foot fatigue even after long hours spent marching under heavy loads.
  • A triple compound outsole made of rubber and rock climbing compound that provides more traction and protection.



On top of that, there are a lot of rucking-specific elements—including a 3D molded PU foam heel lock to keep your feet from slipping, 3mm speed laces, a spacious toe box, 13mm offset to reduce tendon strain, and a dual-density compression foam insert with contoured arches for maximum support.



Put together, these components create a shoe that will keep your feet comfortable even if you’re hoofing it 20+ miles a day.
