Ok, a couple of buddys and myself grabbed a pair as adults just to see how things would go for a different sort of thing (think early twentys late teens group of guys and a foot ball add alcohol) we as a whole were to heavy for there three stooges intended purpose.
^^^^Sorry^^^^ any way we were all about 130 to 210 there was twelve of us and only three were able to get moon bounce going the rest of us just looked incredably stupid as no bounce but our feet did come up faster if you know what i mean. Whole lot of falling not alot of bouncing while running.
Ah! Kangaroo Shoes! They were the originals (but not the ones linked in the previous post). Moon shoes replaced the Kangaroo shoes that were recalled as "unsafe". The ORIGINAL Kangaroo shoes were these metal shoe plates (dark blue) with leather straps that leashed to the foot. Under the metal strap was half of a spring (like an old car spring). You jumped around on these metal coils. It was hard but once you got it they were the shit.
Now, I'm about 205lbs now and I don't think the originals would have moved me much. but when I was like 95 - 120 lbs they were awesome. Oh, I'm stating to feel older but young enough to go to roo!
Points to anyone who brings these: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Velocity_Stilts I'd try myself but they are mad pricey. Throw some glowsticks on you with them suckas on, and thats enough tracers for the crowd tenfold

Anyone seen Powerisers? Those are awesome....my wife doesn't approve of my buying them...she seems to think I would paralyze myself. They allow you to jump 6 feet up and stride 9 feet at a time in full run///I saw one dude with them last year.
