Heely's Review


 
I was a little scared when I was first offered the chance to do this review but then I thought, you know what, go for it, because it is more much than just a skating shoe, it is a regular pair of tennis shoes also! And I was so glad I did because it is such a great fitting pair of shoes and they don't hurt my feet like most tennis shoes do.

I did chicken out some on the style and color though. I am not a youngster, so I chose the plain white ones because they go with everything. Because I did choose such a basic color, I decided I should give you a link to their site that gives you more options to choose from: www.heelys.com

 
I did attempt to try them on my kitchen floor so I could hang onto something versus going outside where I might slip and do some damage! It is sorta funny so don't laugh too hard!!

As you can see, I am not a great skater! But to those of you that are, you will enjoy these shoes so much! I have to admit, I laughed my head off each and every time I tried to skate.

I just could not get the hang of it and my granddaughter kept trying to tell me what to do and it just did not compute in my head!

If I had known she was going to visit, I would have gotten the shoes in her size.

But, she popped up on me out of the blue, so unfortunately for her, they don't fit her.

She wears a little bit larger size than the shoe I got. Like I said earlier, though, I was very surprised at how good they felt and I am happy as a clam using them as a regular pair of tennis shoes and they do look quite lovely on my feet, if I do say so myself!

 
As you know, I try to do a little history side of the company but because I guess this one is an international company I could not find any history to give you but I did find this is their About Us section on their website and it pretty much sums up what Heelys is so I thought I would use their quote because I could not have said it any better:

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 are about exploring your freedom, unleashing the fun and empowering you to be fearless.

I also wanted to give you a link to their Skate 101 tips on how to use their shoes. This is where all your questions can be answered and it also gives you a video on how you should start out skating and lots of very useful information that you need to make sure you do it the right way so hopefully, you won't be like me, and can safely skate without having any worries!

I worry about everything or I would have been a little more adventurous but I think this video does a better job than I could ever have done and I thought leaving it to the experts is the smart thing for me to do because I would hate to give you the wrong suggestions and inadvertently somehow you or your family member had a fall on my account.

I think if you follow the directions on this video you will have the time of your life using these great shoes, whether or not you skate, they are I have to admit, one of the best wearing tennis shoes I have worn. Check them out at heelys.com and enjoy your shoes once you place your order!

One last place I think you should check out is their Play Book site that gives you the responsible way to skate and the correct manners to have in different situations that you might encounter while wearing your Heelys.

And lastly, just have fun!
