Bernd Hummel, the licensee for KangaROOS in Germany and many other European countries, has a new distributor in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. From July, Urban Shoes acts as sales agent for the brand with some retailers and as distributor for other accounts. In the U.K., Bernd Hummel has signed a contract with Gardiner Bros & Co, distributor of brands such as Puma, Dr. Martens, The Flexx, Timberland and Skechers, for the sales of KangaROOS' product line from this month. Previously, the small number of accounts in the U.K. were handled directly from Germany.
