Retro Ad From September 1984, The Kangaroos “Aussie”

‘FRONT-RUNNER: The Awesome “Aussie”. KangaROOS and Goodyear pioneer the incredible “Indy 500” Compound Sole.’

The tire-inspired outsole was intended to increase durability and traction. The “Aussie” had tread based on that of the Goodyear VR50 which came on Corvettes in 1984.

KangaROOS has a pretty cool thing going with Goodyear. I remember one of the shoes even had Aquatred just like the tires. Leave a comment if you enjoyed the ad!
