The year 1979, St. Louis, USA. There and then the history of KangaROOS has taken off. The brand was founded by Bob Gamma, a former architect, that loved to run in his free time. Every time he went for a run, he was worried that he has nowhere to hide his keys and a few dollars, apart from his pocket, which was highly impractical. The idea turned heads, and currently, the brand operates in over 50 countries around the world. The brand stayed true to the original idea, so you can find a little pocket in each model until today.
