KangaROOS — The Side Pocket

Sneaker Shown: KangaROOS Combat

Year: 1979

Out running with no pockets? No problem. Architect and avid jogger Bob Gamm created a sneaker with a pouch, which stemmed out of a preference for light athletic clothes without pockets. While the pocket has been used throughout its lifetime for things other than one's keys while jogging, it's the complete originality of the ROOS' pouch that makes the sneaker an absolute classic.
