"Heelys are the original shoe with wheels in the heels that allow the user to transition from a walk to a roll by shifting weight to the heel. Users can also transform Heelys into street shoes by removing the wheels."
I am having a hard time getting used to these wheeled shoes. Heelys sent me a pair to try and out, and I was pretty excited to act like a kid again! Turns out my balance, especially when pregnant is not very good.
I love the look of my Heelys. There are so many different styles to choose from, and sizes range from kids to adult. When Mark and I got married, he had a pair of Heelys and I just laughed at them, because to me they were a kids shoe. I've learned differently. I personally think it would be a blast to get some Heelys for the whole family. You see families biking together, roller blading, and going on walks. I think the next new thing will be Heely family outings!
When I pulled my Heelys out to try out, I showed Princess V. You can't really see the wheels, so at first she wasn't too interested. Then I started rolling them around the floor. Her eyes about bugged out, and she excitedly exclaimed "MOM do those have wheels?!!" followed by "Can I try them?" I have a hard time saying no, so of course I let her try them on.
That is the look of pure joy! She then insisted I try them on as well. Sorry no picture. I will be using my Heelys more as a street shoe until I have a bit more of my balance back. I may find next summer that going for walks with the stroller is more fun with my own set of wheels!
