KangaROOS

An American sneaker brand designed by architect and jogging enthusiast Bob Gamm, KangaROOS were originally produced in the 70s through the 80s and featured a small zippered pocket on the side of the shoe.

Gamm ran about 10km a day and preferred light athletic clothes without pockets, therefore he created shoes where he could store his keys or money. By the early 80s, he was selling 700,000 pairs a day. By the end of the decade, sales were on the decline and the brand quietly faded away. In the late 90s, KangaROOS reappeared and are currently being sold in 60 countries.
