Heely's Skate Shoes for Adults Review

 Have you ever been in the store and seen a kid go whizzing by and wonder how did they do that?!? I have wondered how they can skate with a pair of shoes. I have mentioned to my husband a few times I want a pair of those. He has replied "They are kids shoes!" When I realized they made adult sizes I really wanted to try them! When I had the chance to review some I was excited.

They look like great shoes, sort of remind me of a converse type of shoe but with wheels. As soon as I got them I opened up the wheel package and installed them. That part was easy, it comes with a little tool to pop out the plug and put in the wheel. I thought was a great aspect to be able to go with wheels or without wheels. But for me that was the only easy part. I am not sure of its me or the shoes but I fell over a few times while trying to test these out. I tried over the next 2 weeks to see if I could master the wheeled shoes like the kids I saw in the grocery store. Well I did not master the cool shoes as I thought I would. They were fun to wear around the house but I could not seem to be able to wear them outside.

Kids seem to love these shoes and I am sure must be more coordinated than me. I will be giving these shoes to my little sister in hopes she can wheel her way around school.

Heelys is throwing a Black Friday special!! Between Nov 25-Nov 28, Buy any pair of Heelys, get the second pair for $25. 

I even tried a few of the cool tricks from the Heelys website. They did not turn our as well as the example but it was fun to try. Here is some useful info on Heelys shoes.

* I was sent a pair of free Heelys to review through Business2Blogger. I was not paid for this post. All opinions are 100% mine and your experience may vary.

You didnt have someone to teach you that's why! Had a pair when I was 14.. I'm 28 now and want another pair.

You keep one foot in front of the other, BUT your back foots toes need to touch your front foots heel. Your dominant foot should be in the back.. now try it. Speed walk into it !
