I remember my first encounter with Heelys. I though how in the heck are those kids able to figure that out, as they sailed through the frozen food section of the grocery store. Since then every where we have moved has had tons of kids in Heelys proving they aren’t just a fad.
I am a mom that lives on the edge…okay I still want to live on the edge. As I have aged I find myself being more safe and looking back at the child I was.
I climbed cottonwood trees out on the farm close to 100ft in the air without a thought of splatting on the ground, I’ve climbed mountains, camped in bear country, and taken all kinds of crazy chances that I would
probably not do again.
Where did that girl go? She is still here and I’m letting her out. My husband thinks I’m crazy because I just had a few hundred thousand dollar surgery to be able to walk again, but you only live once and what is cooler than shoes with wheels?!
I’ve been practicing since I got them, but honestly I can tell you…I am so not kid talented. My mind is still all twisted up. Retraining my mind and body will take a lot of practice. I have also realized that using Heely shoes are a good way to strengthen my week leg since the back fusion.
The shoes are comfortable. They lace up just like any other shoe would. The cool part is they can be regular cool shoes or even cooler, skate shoes. All it takes is a quick pop in or out of the wheel and/or cover (small enough to comfortably fit in my purse).
I’ve used these shoes to skate around my dining room table and walk several miles on my treadmill. I have really enjoyed them. Totally a fun must have!
Heelys is throwing a Black Friday special!! Between Nov 25-Nov 28, Buy any pair of Heelys, get the second pair for $25. Or buy a Nano, and get a pair of shoes for $25, and get free ground shipping on all orders!
I kind of feel bad because my kids have been asking for Heelys for just as long as I can remember seeing them. I’ve always said no because I thought they were complicated and too dangerous for them. Now I have a pair and they are going to get a pair from Santa.
