Kangaroos are pretty sweet, I like the fact that you can run with your keys in the shoe and not have any dangling bag or stuff in your pockets. Unluckily they're difficult to find here nowadays, I ordered a pair online a couple of years ago but it didn't fit me and the shipping back and forth was too expensive so I ended up selling them locally.

Walmart ruins everything. LA Gear, Starter, Russell, Mongoose and Schwinn bikes - the list is a long one. I remember back when Sears bought Kmart and had the "smart idea" of selling sears sold brands in Kmart stores Nike and a couple other brands ended their contract with Sears. Seeing what happened to Starter, who owned the sport clothing market in the early to mid 90's they new allowing their products to be sold in a discount store like Kmart would devalue it's brand.
