From running shoes to a lifestyle brand: KangaROOS has been one of the top sneaker brands for over 30 years. In 1979, Bob Gamm, a passionate jogger and architect, invented and designed the running shoes with a small pocket. The COMBAT became a cult classic. It has now been reissued and is a heritage success story. The likeable kangaroo brand logo also dates from the early days of KangaROOS. The company later embraced technical innovations such as DYNACOIL, which is now integrated into the retro insoles of heritage running styles. The product range continued to grow: KangaROOS was one of the first sports brands to sponsor marathon stars, basketball icons, football legends and hockey teams. KangaROOS developed from a top U.S. sports outfitter into an international lifestyle brand. Today, KangaROOS consists of innovative products, reissued classics and trendy collaborations with hip brands, designers and stores. KangaROOS combines tradition and know-how with an awareness of international trends for the authentic urban lifestyle: creative, fast-paced and open-minded.
