Adding a spring to your step…literally, Kangoo shoes are a hip-hoppin’ new footwear trend invading the parks, sidewalks and fitness centres around the glode. Identified by their roller-blade-looking boot with oval-shaped rubber shock absorber bouncers attached to the bottom, Kangoo shoes are the modern-day moon boot booming big-time with Vancouver’s fitness-obsessed citizens.
According to the Kangoo Club Canada manufacturers, Kangoo shoes are meant for physical activity, reducing the impact of force on one’s knees by 80% and burning more calories in comparison to the average light-weight running shoe. Whether worn for jogging, aerobics, or pleometrics, Kangoo shoes parallel the pogo stick in matters of fun fitness, resulting in the upsurge of their use within the current work-out world.
Retailing for around $300 at Kangoo Club, Kangoo shoes serve as an innovative and entertaining new footwear accessory that kick-start the heart and bounce off the jiggle. Watch out for the increasing wave of Kangoo shoe newbies wobbling your way, as apparently one needs ample practice in order to get a hang of the hop. This summer why not take a chance and join the parade of jolly jumpers, you may actually enjoy working out for once!
