Heelys Skate Shoes Review

When I was growing up, I was pretty "poor". We had a place to live and food usually, but hardly nothing else.

Needless to say that was hard, especially when it came to things like shoes and clothes. As any normal child/teen, I wanted what I saw my peers with.

One of those things was Heelys Skate Shoes. There is just something so awesome about being able to skate in your sneakers. And to make it even better, the styles are just so awesome, that they make great sneakers even without the wheels.

I have been wanting a pair of Heelys ever since I first saw them, but once I became a mom and such, I kind of let it go, and never did get a pair.

Well recently, I saw a pair and all the Heely Envy came back in full, so I decided I had to get a pair.

I was lucky enough to be able to do a review for all of you, and I couldn't be happier.

Once I knew they were coming, I was like a child waiting for Christmas morning. I could wait to get them. And when I did, I almost hit the ceiling.

They are even more awesome that they look on the website.

I chose these Fade ones, and I LOVE the style.

They cone with the wheels out. and you can wear them without the wheels, or take the plugs out and put the wheels in.

It is so easy to take out the "plug" and insert the wheels, the tool for removing the plug is even included.

I love that you can use the plugs for places where wheeled shoes are not allowed(school, etc.)  and since it is so easy to change them in and out, you could skate to school and then take the wheels out and put the plugs in.

I will be completely honest and say that I am now a much bigger chicken than I was in my younger days, and I am kinda scared of falling which is making it a little difficult for me to find my balance point and actually skate in them, but I am working on it, and am determined to become a pro.

So for right now, I am wearing these as sneakers only, but I've still gotten so many compliments on the style. People keep asking me what brand they are, and they are being confused with  the other kind of "skate shoes"(skateboarding style).

People are really surprised when I tell them they are Heelys, especially women. They always say they never knew Heelys made such cute styles for ladies.

I love getting compliments, so that works out super well for me. And I really love helping people discover products that they will love, and that is why I do what I do.

Heelys are really awesome shoes weather you want to skate with them or not. They are so comfortable(which is really important to me). They fit so well and are very well made. I can tell that these will last a long time before needing to be replaced.

What I think is really awesome is that Heelys cost about the same(or even less) than name brand sneakers, but offer so much more. You get skates and sneakers plus comfort and durability all for a much better value than other brands.

I can tell you that I recommend Heelys to everyone. If you have been wanting a pair, just do it. If your kids have been asking for Heelys but you have been hesitant, I think you should do it, you won't find a better value elsewhere.

Plus what I really love about Heelys, is that kids(or anyone) will want to actually skate in them, and nowadays with so many kids inside glued to their video games, computers and cell phones, they are not as active as us older generations were as children. Having something fun to make them want to be active is so great, and you can't put a price on health.

Bottom line? Heelys are awesome.

P.S. I will keep you guys updated as I actually learn to skate well, and I might even post a video.
