Best Kangoo Boots

Kangoo Jumps and Bouncing Boots Reviewed and Compared

You might think that the main attraction of Kangoo Jumps (the term used to describe Kangoo boots) is that they are a lot of fun.

While you’d be dead right, there is another – more important – reason for choosing them. The design reduces the impact on your joints by up to 80%. At the same time, you’ll be able to get a vigorous workout. Kangoo boots are used for aerobics classes and for running / jogging. Once you experience these with the extra bounce that the Jumps provide, regular shoes will start to feel a little, well, flat!

Bounce boots (whether for Kangoo classes or for running) are not cheap, though the regular discounts and free shipping at amazon.co.uk will help. For this reason, I recommend you try them out first. Most places have a gym class which uses them, give it a go – I’m sure you’ll be bouncing back to this page to find out about the different options. Just in case, it might be a good idea to bookmark this page now…

Here is what you will find on this guide to the best Kangoo boots:

  • First below is a table summarizing the 3 main options, this is based on the best-selling Jumps so far in 2017.
  • Sizing comes next, after that I have gone into (a lot) more detail on the different options for both adults and children.
  • Accessories for your boots include stylish bags, specially designed carry-belts and replacement springs (for heavy users).
  • A quick mention of how to run in Kangoo boots, and what happens in the classes follows.
  • At the end of the page you’ll already be an expert. I have repeated the table here, and you’ll hopefully find that the summaries now make a lot of sense!

What Kangoo Jumps Boots Go with Shoe Size X?

Jumps do not have an exact match with UK shoe sizes. Instead they come in ranges. Users aim for the range which is one size above their normal size. Kangoo boots are flexible enough that there is some margin for error with this!

KangooJumps (the original brand in this area) are available from size 13 (kids’ sizes) all the way through to size 14 Adult – so you’ll have no problem finding a boot to fit you.

An advantage of buying your boots at the official KangooJumps store at amazon is the no-quibble returns policy. If your boots do not fit, you can simply send them back for an instant refund or replacement.

Detail – The 3 Best Selling Brands of Kangoo / Bounce Boots

#1 – KangooJumps XR 3 Adults Rebound Shoes

Best Kangoo Jumps 2017It makes sense to start with the original ‘brand’ of jumps, these are by far the best-sellers and really do set the standard which the other brands follow. Not only can you get several handy accessories, the replacement parts (like the springs) are very easy to get hold of. A pair of original KangooJumps should last you a long time!

For adults, the best-selling and latest models are the KangooJumps XR3 model. These come in 4 sizes, covering adult size 3 through 14! They are also available in child sizes, which cover children’s size 13 through to adult size 2. You get a choice of colours. Most are based on black with bright extras (for example orange), though I think that the white / blue (which has a silver shoe) is the best looking of all.

As you might expect from the niche leader, the feedback has been excellent. In fact, the only very negative comment at the time of writing was from someone who found themselves too out of breath the first time around!

There is a mix of comments from those who bought them for a fun workout, and those with joint / mobility issues who bought them for a lower impact workout. Both sets of people speak highly of the speed of delivery and the quality of the jumps.

While buying original KangooJumps is a little more expensive than the copies, the big brand service, overall quality and ease of getting accessories are all big plus points.

#2 – Geospace Air Kicks Anti-Gravity Running Boots

GeoSpace Bounce BootsCompared to KangooJumps, these bounce boots are significantly cheaper. From a distance, they look very similar – a plastic heavy-duty boot with an oval sprung mechanism to help you jump along. The anti-gravity boots come in 3 types. For women (size 5.5 to 11.5), Men (size 6-10) and youth (which is size 4 to 7). There are several colour variations including black with red or blue trim and silver / blue.

Just like with the official Kangoo Jumps, you can replace the t-spring. This should not need to be done too often, though if you use them often, these will need switching now and again.

Feedback on these models has been ‘mixed’.

Some people liked them, giving 5 star ratings. Others complained that these were cheap and plasticy bounce boots and not worth the money paid.

Reading between the lines, I’m going to suggest that these are the ‘fun’ end of the market. If you want to bounce around, have some fun and then put your boots away until next year – then these Geospace jumps make a cheap and cheerful alternative to the Kangoo branded ones. If you are serious about Kangoo classes or running, then I’m not convinced that these are the right boots for you.

#3 – Zcoins Anti-Gravity Running Boots

After reading the product page at amazon.co.uk, I can’t go any further with these bounce boots!

One thing is for sure, these boots will ‘make you health’ and ‘It can bear exceed weight of a normal human’.

Can’t be all bad then.

Will leave this spot open for any viable alternatives that appear.

For me the sensible choice is to go with the original and best-known brand – KangooJumps:

KangooJumps XR 3 Adult’s Rebound Shoes Multi-Coloured Black/Orange Size:39-41

Kangoo Boot Accessories Guide

Accessories come in two types, carrying options and new springs / parts.

Kangoo Jumps Accessories - BagKangoo Jumps Storage Bag

These official bags have a distinctive lopsided look and are perfectly formed to store your boots. Each bag comes with a shoulder strap. There are red, black, black and pink and camouflage options. Feedback on these bags is excellent.

See the different colour options for yourself on this dedicated amazon.co.uk product page.

 

Kangoo Jumps Carry Belt

This is a great alternative to a bag. You’ll get a specially designed belt, with a shoulder pad and two g-clamps at the end. When your boots are attached, you can carry them easily over your shoulder. This belt will also help to keep your boots in pairs when you are not carrying them. Much cheaper than a bag, and if you are only carrying your jumps a short distance, these could well be ideal. This is the page to check out these cool belts.

Kangoo Jumps Replacement T-Spring

If you use your jumps regularly, the spring is bound to wear. Feedback shows that you should get a year of heavy use or 2 years of lighter use, before you start to feel the difference. One big advantage of going with the original boots, is that replacing those springs is a quick and easy job. You can get replacement t-springs straight from the manufacturer of the boots.

Using Kangoo Boots – Running and Aerobics Classes

If you want to try an aerobics class featuring Kangoo, you will not usually need to buy your own boots right away. In fact, I would advise you to try out a couple of classes wearing them first. Some gyms may have a small extra hire charge, to help recoup the cost of the boots. These classes are a lot of fun, and of course – much lower impact on your joints. If you become a regular, then your own boots can make these classes even better.

Running in KangooJumps can reduce impacts on your joints by up to 80% according to the manufacturers. This is significant, and will allow many people to enjoy jogging or running who might otherwise have found this uncomfortable. These are designed for outdoor use, I strongly advise against using Jumps on a home treadmill!

You’ll attract some looks while you run, people are simply not familiar with jumps! For many, the comfort easily makes up for the inquisitive bystanders. Keep in mind that you’ll still need to put some work into running. The bounce will help you move faster, though if you have not run for a while then you’ll find this a demanding cardio activity!

Best Kangoo Bounce Boots 2017 – Summing Up

In most categories of fitness equipment there are 2 or 3 different brands which are all viable options. My investigations into Kangoo Jumps show that there is one quality lead brand in this area – and several ‘copies’ which have not yet established a reputation for quality products.

When you take into account that the original Jumps are not significantly more than the copies, it does become a one-sided decision for many people.

Not only will the original brand give you a quality workout session, it comes with the accessories and replacement parts you’ll need to keep on going.
