You know you've seen them, whether it be the kids whizzing past you on the sidewalk or on a certain doctor in a certain television show (that I happen to love) -- they're Heelys, the shoe with wheels! You may think they're "just for kids," but they're definitely not! They can provide an amazing leg workout for adults too!
Now, I'm a little on the clumsy side, so my Heelys usage isn't superior, but I can say that in watching the tutorial videos and practicing, I'm getting better! I can also say that my 4-year-old is completely jealous of mommy's new shoes, and I'm not sure how often THAT will happen. The Heelys are super comfortable and built well. I like a good pair of shoes for chasing the kids around and these can do double duty: Exercise AND practicality!
I really like that the wheels are removable. I love the shoes, but I know that when I'm carrying kids around, I definitely DON'T want to be on wheels. If I had the wheels in all the time, I'd likely be posting from a hospital bed ;)
As you can see, each shoe has a black "plug" of plastic that keeps random gunk from ending up in the hole and preventing your wheels from being able to do their job. All you do is utilize the handy tool that's included with your shoes, (the tool is backwards in the picture, my apologies!) pop out the plug and pop in your wheel!
Nice and simple! When you're done with the wheel, you can just take it out and put the plug back in. It's a great feature for kids too. If they walk to school, they can use the wheels to get there a little faster and take them out while they get to the building without having to bring an extra pair of shoes along.
You can get more information about Heelys by checking out the website or Facebook! Let's not forget the Twitter either!
Whether you want to try a pair of Heelys for yourself or for your kids, Heelys is throwing a Labor Day/Back-to-School special in a couple of weeks!! Between Sept 2, 2011 and Sept 5, 2011 you can buy one pair of Heelys, get the second pair for only $30!
