Performance from the very beginning

With an architectural flair and the ambition of a passionate runner, Bob Gamm laid the foundations for the label at the end of the seventies. During his running laps, he repeatedly asked himself the question: "Where to put the key?" and in 1979 he came up with the answer with the KangaROOS: a running shoe with an integrated bag. Inspired by the Australian animals, the shoes were not only designed to be practical, but also to provide plenty of speed.

The first model, the Combat, has a steep drop: The shoe runs right at the front through the home stretch of the Boston City Marathon. Runner Bill Rodgers not only beats his own record, but also the American record - a rocket start for the shoe label. KangaROOS storms the world market and also makes a name for itself in other sports with various models. The shoes quickly became more popular than almost any other sneaker and the new must-have in the streetwear sector.

With Clyde Drexler, one of the best NBA players of all time, the manufacturer ignites the next rocket: Drexler wins gold at the Olympic Games and goes down in history - along with his KangaROOS.

Hyped silhouettes

From the very first model, the performance of the shoes played a key role. After all, Gamm himself was an enthusiastic runner and always on the lookout for "even better". But of course, other factors such as appearance and sustainability are also key pillars of the success of KangaROOS shoes. There are now countless cool colorways that are in high demand. The sneakers are produced in Germany, under the "Made in Germany" line. This means that KangaROOS is setting new standards in terms of quality and sustainability, as the shoes are made by hand using high-quality materials such as calfskin. But which styles are particularly popular?

KangaROOS Originals

This line includes vintage-style sneakers that are absolutely in line with current fashion trends. Both the KangaROOS shoes for women and the men's line offer a wide selection and have the right sneaker for every taste. Models such as the Coil or the Aussie come with a material mix of different types of leather and mesh as well as various fresh or retro colorways. You'll find a little more dad shoe character in silhouettes such as the Exo II Ultimate, where vintage style meets modern colors.

KangaROOS Made in Germany

The Hummel & Hummel Schuhmanufaktur in the Palatinate has been producing the popular KangaROOS premium line since 2011. Collabos such as the "What's Beef" or "Bobby's Gin" are currently ultra-hyped and only produced in small quantities. The add-ons such as extra laces or coins make these special collabos real collector's items.

And by the way, you can order your very own customized sneakers, namely with the ROOS ID: The handmade Coil R2 can be personalized on the tongue and thus provide a very special outfit finish.

ROOSKickx

The skater and vintage style is also popular with the little ones - because the Kickx line for boys and girls is a real hit. The KangaROOS children's shoes for kids and teens offer the usual comfort with the best quality, because the sneakers have to withstand a lot in everyday life. The Lites and Invader are the ideal shoes for every day and come in a sporty design. The Easy silhouette is also very popular and comes with laces and a Velcro fastener. The RI-Lites are a real eye-catcher for the little ones and offer stability and a high level of comfort.

More than just a bag

The label became famous for its practical bag, which could be used to store house keys or money without getting in the way while walking. The kangaroo was the ideal logo, as it not only carries the bag, but is also known for its enormous speed. However, Gamm was not satisfied with the bag alone. As a runner, performance and comfort were just as important to him as practical details. KangaROOS continued to research the latest technologies and developed the Dynacoil cushioning system, which is integrated into the sole. This technology is used by NASA for Apollo space flights and is made from a shock-absorbing material that also ensures an optimized posture and guarantees safe movement.

Of course, KangaROOS also has a lot going for it visually and is a globally hyped fashion sports brand. With their styles, they have always had their finger on the pulse of the times and have also integrated the current dad shoe and retro trend into their designs. In addition to high quality and a wealth of experience in a wide variety of sports, the label offers the right sneaker for every function and has really stepped on the gas, especially in the lifestyle sector. So KangaROOS are more than just shoes with a bag - and they're really going places. We like!
