It was an American architect by the name of Bob Gamm who conceived the original idea for shoes with pockets back in 1979.
Gamm, a running enthusiast, had struggled to find a place to store his keys and money whilst out jogging his daily 10K. Taking matters into his own hands, Gamm, a keen designer, developed his own lightweight training shoe with a small zippered pocket on the side.
The KangaROOS brand was born.
KangaROOS' history is rich with a culture of innovation and fun, driven by the pioneer spirit of its founder Bob Gamm, and KangaROOS’ future is no different.
Working with world-class local partners, to understand and communicate with consumers, has given KangaROOS a competitive edge in an ever-changing global market.
