I had the opportunity to review Heelys Skate Shoes. Did you read that... I HAD the opportunity :) Not my 10 y/o, or my 8 y/o, but me! Check these babies out...
Do people even say cool anymore? There phat. Tight. Off the chain.
I love the new designs Heelys have out now.
They also have the option of 2 rollers instead of just 1, for those just learning.
I really wanted those, but they only came in youth sizes!
I like the look of the ones I got (I love grey) and the shoes aren't too 'bulky'. They look like regular tennis shoes. (Heelys are also very durable. I know this from experience, b/c my oldest child had a pair a couple of years ago, and when she out grew them, they still looked brand new. (and she wore them a lot). Now my middle child is wearing them!)
Of course, I had to give my new kicks a try with the wheels IN (they pop in and out, so they can be worn as a regular shoe, or a skate shoe)
ready to roll baby!
Oh my. How long has it been since I've had wheels on my feet?!
too long apparently!
(I never fell however!)
My little man thought mommy was funny!
Then Number One had to show me up.
She wheeled around (without arms flailing in all directions) like it was nothing. And made sure to have that "OMG Mom, this is SO easy, I can't believe you can't do it" expression on her face. Maybe I should have checked out the Skate101 video - you know, so I could get the 411 on the skate basics.
Yes, Number One and I are in practically the same size shoe now. So guess who has commandeered my cool new shoes? And I was being all fly with my skate shoes.
I have to say, Heelys are a lot of fun for the whole family! Even better, not only can you play in them (while getting lots of exercise!), but because of all the awesome new styles, they can be worn as regular tennis shoes too. Number One has been wearing
mine hers to school almost every day! I make sure the wheels stay at home of course!
