My Kangaroos

Back in the 80s, my Kangaroo shoes were the equivalent to superhero shoes. It wasn’t just because they were purple and had an awesome kangaroo on the side. It was also because of the secret compartment.

Yes, the secret compartment meant that I had a handy carrying place for my sugar pills. I was always prepared in an emergency with at least one pill and I thought that was pretty cool. I was totally mobile and ready for action wearing my special shoes. Just me and my shoes on the crusade of life.
