This genuine Kangaroo Hide, is one of the great exotic leather shoes of yesteryear. Difficulties interpreting and negotiating the varying endangered species legislation of the many countries to which these and other exotics were exported made continuing their manufacture impractical and most were discontinued by the mid-1980s. This example represents the beautiful traditional work still produced at the time. It is fair to say that the few kangaroo shoes shown in these pages are likely among the last of their kind, certainly the last in this near new condition anywhere. In terms of rarity, in ten years, I have only seen a handful of shoes in this material that were is a condition of interest to us.
At once dressy and relaxed, this remarkably durable, comfortable and overarchingly elegant Loafer is worthy of the most advanced collector. Made for the American market, this was a very expensive shoe in its day; today it would priceless. If this shoe is your size, do not hesitate to add it to your collection.
