Have a great time wherever you go with Heelys - A review


When I was younger, I went to the mall with my parents and I ran across a pair of pink and white sneakers. These weren't just any kind of sneaker, these had wheels on the heel - they were Heelys! I was absolutely mesmerized by these shoes and had to have a pair! After many promises to clean my butt off I finally convinced my parents to buy me a pair. As soon as we got out of the mall I put them on for the first time. After that you couldn't get those shoes off of me if you tried! Now, many years later, Heelys has expanded their selection and now make sneakers for adults as well as children! Now the entire family can join in on the fun!

What are Heelys?
If you're always on the go and looking for a pair of sneakers with style and flair, Heelys are for you!  Heelys are sneakers with detachable wheels so you can skate around anywhere you go!  Not in the mood to skate today?  Just take the wheels off and place the plug back in and you're ready to go! 
According to their site, "Heelys are the two-in-one shoe that lets you take life at your own pace.  With the wheels out, the stylish designs perform and look just like any other shoe.  When you easily put the wheels in, you roll at a different speed.  Heelys is about exploring your freedom, unleashing the fun,  and empowering you to be fearless."

My Review
I picked out a pair of beautiful gray and teal colored Heelys.  The second they came and I opened that box it brought back a lot of memories from when I got my first pair of Heelys and how much fun I had.  I tried them on and they felt very comfortable though the heel seemed to be a little small so I felt like my foot was about to pop out of the shoe at any moment.  I'm a little less daring now a days so after a couple days of testing my new Heelys out indoors (so if I fell on my butt at least no one would see me!) I finally ventured outside to test them out on my driveway.  Josh and Ashton got a kick out of seeing me flail my arms around as I attempted to remember how to skate. 
I love the fact that the newer Heelys, unlike the first pair I had, have a detachable wheel.  Back in the day, the wheel would kind of snap up into a little compartment in the heel of your shoe.  They also have a lot more styles for children, women and men.  If you're looking to spice up your family's next walk, Heelys is for you.
Shopaholic Rating : 4 out of 5 Shopping Bags - Though my heel felt like it was going to slip out of the shoe at any moment, the Heely's are actually quite comfortable otherwise.  They are a ton of fun and great exercise as well!

Where can you find your own Heelys?
If you're interested in purchasing a pair of Heelys for yourself, your family or even a very lucky friend you can visit the Heelys website and purchase there or find a store near you!  While you're there you can also browse their incredible selection, watch videos on how to use your Heelys safely and more!  Prices vary for a pair of Heelys but the pair I chose retails for $60 and you can purchase most with one wheel on each shoe, but some come with two for a faster even more exciting experience!  Right now Heelys is holding a Labor Day/Back to School special between September 2nd and the 5th - buy one pair of Heelys get another pair for only $30!
