In 1988, Bob Gamm retires and sells KangaROOS to a California based group of investors. He dies in 2010 at the age of 91. KangaROOS commemorates him with a special edition of his favorite KangaROOS sneaker, the Classic BLAZE, limited to only 91 pairs.
Since 1991 Pentland Brands Ltd., a family owned business based in London, has held the rights to the KangaROOS brand.
We, the Bernd Hummel GmbH, have been the world's largest and longest-standing licensee since the early 80s, after Bernd Hummel had discovered KangaROOS at a trade fair in the USA.
