This week I received a pair of fabulous HEELYS in the mail and I have to say, they are SO MUCH FUN!
In case you have never heard of them before, Heelys are regular shoes with a compartment on the bottom, which houses a single wheel [on each shoe] and allows the wearer to skate!
Not only do children or teens get to have fun in these little gems but they are manufactured up to a size 12 in men's shoes and thus make some fabulous adult fun too! Fantastic for the whole family and gets you up and active together, which I feel is very important in this day and age, where most family life centers more around technology and less on getting up and moving!!
The colors on these particular pair of Heelys are bright orange and grey with a hint of black and they secure tightly with long, tough laces. They were easy to put on and comfortable to wear and very easy to walk in without the wheel, which pops out with the tool that comes provided with the skates for your own convenience and is covered with a secure flat cover so you're no left with a huge gap in your shoe!
Walking in Heelys WITH the wheel is a little trickier but the whole point is to skate and that can takes a little getting used to. Once you find your balance and a little rhythm it is actually quite easy!
Of course, I am a big kid at heart and I admit I will be keeping these for myself, but I have to say that I have had a lot of "OH MAN! I want those!" comments from my teen son and his friends, who just ADORE them! Unfortunately my son, who is 16 and 6 feet tall is also a size 13 shoe and so doesn't fit into Heelys' current sizes but who knows what the future will bring!
If you like what you see and want to find out more about the Heelys collection, which is vast and colorful, then you can find them on Twitter, Facebook and, of course, Heelys.com where you can find the pair featured in this review for $74.99!
What are you waiting for?! Check out some fun today - and remember! Stay safe and wear protective clothing for your own peace of mind!
Disclaimer: I was provided with a pair of Heelys for the sake of this review, but I was not otherwise monetarily compensated and the provision of the shoes did not, in any way, change my opinion of the shoes themselves or the company. All opinions are 100% honest and my own. Your opinions may vary. Thank you!
