Heelys aren’t just for kids anymore!
Ever see kids rolling around on Heelys and wonder, “Do they make those in my size?” Well, they do! And now they even have styles that make Mom look good as well.
New Styles of Heelys Shoes
Heelys now offers new styles that are more fashion-forward than previous Heelys. These new styles are geared towards girls and women boasting features like flower buckles and raised heels, providing a little extra height for the wearer and a look that goes great with jeans, shorts or skirts.
Like traditional Heelys, the updated designs feature removable wheels that can easily be taken out, turning them into a fashionable pair of shoes.
The new designs include the Jogger, Socialite, and Hipster. I recently received a pair of the Jogger Heelys and love the look of these shoes.
Rolling Around in Heelys Shoes
Now it’s been a few years since I’ve found myself rolling around on skates. And I never got the hang of roller blades. So Heelys definitely proved quite difficult when I first laced them up. But like most things, practice makes perfect. And after a few tries, I got the hang of balancing AND propelling myself in my Heelys shoes.
There are a few reasons why Heelys are great for moms like myself:
- Once Mom learns how to skate, she can teach her kids
- Kids are fast, Heelys are faster
- Fashionable shoes that make you go faster are always a great choice
- Heeling in Heelys shoes means we’re up and moving – Exercise is always good!
- Finding a common interest with our kids means we have more bonding time
Quality Shoes that Get Us Moving
Heelys aren’t just a fun shoe, they’re also made with a quality you’d expect. The stitching is superb, the fit is snug and supporting, and the selection of styles are current with today’s fashion trends.
I loved how supportive my Heelys felt when I first put them on. Most shoes I wear need to be worn a few times to be comfortable but not Heelys. I was able to slip them on and lace them up in no time. And even though I fell on my butt a few times while on them at first, I quickly figured out the balance I needed to stay upright.
With a few laughs from my family, and some encouraging words, I was on my way! And I already have requests from my son to get him a pair for his 4th birthday in February. Not sure if that’ll happen quite yet but when it does, I’m prepared!
Heelys shoes are a great gift for this holiday season! Not only will they encourage an active lifestyle, they also allow parents to bond with their children.
And these great new styles and more are available at many retailers both online and in stores. You can buy your pair through the Heelys online shop http://shop.heelys.com, Zappos and Amazon, and in specialty stores located in more than 40 countries around the world.
