Heelys transcend the boundary between toy, fitness equipment and apparel to become a unique one-of-a-kind gift idea.
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 are shoes with a single or double wheel in the heel and they allow the wearer to go from walking to rolling simply by shifting their weight to their heels. When the wheels are easily removed, the shoe performs just like any other shoe.
And the really cool part is that Heelys aren’t just for kids! Moms can get in the action too with the new Heelys Hx2.
Heelys Hx2 are different than the original Heelys in that they have a double wheel in the heel instead of a single wheel. This double wheel makes it easier to learn how to balance and skate. Once you master skating in the Heelys Hx2 you can choose to remove one of the 2 wheels for a more challenging ride.
Check out the cool new Heelys Hx2 styles:
Stingray is the style for for boys and comes in sizes 12C – 3 Youth and in 3 different color schemes.
Sparkler is the style for girls and comes in sizes 12C – 3 Youth and is available in 3 different color schemes.
Jazzy is the style for girls & women and comes in sizes 12C – 6 Youth for girls and 7-9 for women. Jazzy comes in 2 different color schemes.
I am a big fan of something that kids think is cool and gets them active. I am also a big fan of things that provide the opportunity for kids and parents to get active together. I know my son and I will enjoy getting outside in our Heelys and skating around the neighborhood. I like to take advantage of these kind of opportunities not only for the fitness aspect but also because I’m sure as he gets older he’ll be embarrassed to be seen with me.
We’ve been given the opportunity to try out the new Heelys Hx2 and once we’ve had a chance to do that, I’ll update here to give you more in-depth specific information about them. But in the meantime, consider Heelys as a gift idea for the kids on your list or even as a “mommy and me” type gift for a mom and kid. What a fun and unique Christmas gift!
