If you have kids then I know you have heard of Heelys.
I have heard about them for awhile now, by hearing how much my 12 year old daughter, Jbug saying she wants a pair.
To her suprise she is getting a pair for Christmas..
She is going to faint!!!!
These are such a GREAT Holiday present to give to any child (or anyone) you know.
But I know after seeing the pair that she is getting I think I just might just have to get a pair for myself.
Have you not heard about Heelys???
Heelys are the two-in-one shoe that lets you take life at your own pace. With the wheels out, the stylish designs perform and look just like any other shoe.
When you easily put the wheels in, you roll at a different speed. Heelys are about exploring your freedom, unleashing the fun and empowering you to be fearless.
Heelys is rolling out four brand new styles of their popular shoes for children, tweens and teens! Heelys Inc., announced that the new styles and sizes will arrive in the Heelys Shop and in stores by mid-November, just in time for the Holiday season.
Now Heelys is offering the new Heelys Hx2
Heelys Hx2 has two removable wheels in each shoe making it ideal for younger wearers — or those new to skating. Like training wheels for a bicycle, the Hx2‘s secondwheel makes it easier for wearers to maintain balance. It also means users don’t need as much leg strength to lift up their toes to skate. Once skaters have mastered the Hx2, the shoe can be converted into a regular pair of Heelys by removing one of the wheels. Or, wearers can pop out both wheels to convert the pair to regular street shoes. The Hx2 is available in children’s sizes at The Heelys Shop and available at a number of different retailers.
Check out this video with the Heelys Hx2
Beginning in early December, the HX2 will also be available in up to an adult size 9, allowing parents to get in on the action as well.
The latest added to the Heely family is the Heelys Nano. It uses Heelys’ patented bracket and new ‘Sole-Link’ technology.
To connect it, users go through steps similar to snapping into a ski or snowboard binding. Simply remove the wheel from one of the Heelys skate shoes and snap the wheel bracket into the Sole-Link. For use on one foot, the board offers the skater similar experiences to slalom skiing and wakeboarding. TheNano(TM) is available at The Heelys Shop.
Check out the Video
Heelys, Inc. is a company founded on innovation. It designs, markets and distributes its action sports-oriented products to the youth market under the Heelys (R) brand. The company’s primary product, Heelys wheeled footwear, is a patented dual-purpose skate shoe that incorporates a stealth removable wheel in the heel. Its new product, Heelys Hx2, uses two wheels for better balance and control, making it ideal for younger users. Heelys’ third offering, Nano, ramps up the Heelys experience by giving skaters a board that links into the patented Heelys shoe bracket. This allows them to skate farther, faster and longer than ever before. Instructional videos on how to get started can be found at http://www.Heelys.com/.
