Heelys Review

I was recently given the opportunity to review a pair of Heelys.    You might be wondering what exactly are Heelys?   They are these super cool shoes that look like regular sneakers but have a wheel hidden in the heel so you can skate.   You can also pop the wheels out and put a cover over the hole so you can wear them anywhere like regular shoes. 

Now, they were SUPPOSED to be for me...I honestly thought about it for 2 seconds.   I used to love rollerskating when I was younger and eventually rollerblading but that was two kids and a lot of years ago.   I'm pretty sure me being me would have broken something within 5 minutes of putting them on. 

Instead I got a pair for Logan and he was absolutely thrilled.   I must say when they arrived I was a little disappointed I didn't get a pair for me because they are really cute shoes without the wheel in them.   We had a really tough time picking a pair out because they were all so awesome looking.   Eventually we decided on ones that look like this except where these are pink his a lime green.  

I must say I was really impressed with the quality of these shoes not to mention how many different styles they have available.   We really did have a hard time deciding on which pair to get.  

Logan is having a hard time learning how to skate in them though and since I've never done it I've had a hard time giving him pointers.   Luckily there is this great how to video available on their website.

I can see that once he gets a hang of it, this will be something for him to do that is fun and also keeps him active.   They also have a great  safety playbook to go over for yourself or with your child.  It is a huge peeve of mine when I am in the store and a kid whizzes by me on their skate shoes, that is something that is NOT reccomended.
