This August KangaROOS celebrates man landing on the moon and the technology that would later go on to be an integral part of KangaROOS running shoes. 10 years after the moon landing Boston architect & athletic enthusiast Bob Gamm invented a sneaker with a pocket to store keys in whilst running his morning routine distance of 10K. Designed for his own personal use at first, but then quickly realized there was a market for his invention and started to offer KangaROOS very effectively. When searching for a proper shock absorption system, Bob came across DYNACOIL and was fascinated right away. The tubular nylon fabric was developed by NASA for the Apollo space program and used for shock absorption in the astronauts' suits and boots – even during the moon landings! Bob decided to refine it for the use in KangaROOS’ midsoles.
