While these are great shoes for adults and kids alike, PLEASE read the instructions, read Heelys Safety Playbook, watch the video at General Heelys Skating Info and check out the Heelys General Guide.
He fell, and fell some more! Right on his butt! He was thinking he could just zoom around like they do on TV and that is not the case. He had to learn how to Heel Skate, no matter how coordinated you are, it still takes time!! It's a good thing they have training videos...so not long after he is able to get around a little better.
While these shoes provide a way to have fun zooming about, they are also a great form of exercise....and with a video gamer, he need all the exercise he can get! The colors, and patterns are super fun and fit every one's personality. You can tell the stitching is sturdy and these will last for a while with all the wear and tear that he gives his shoes. Thanks to Heelys for getting my little man up and moving! I guess with the next one I shouldn't wait so long to get them...There fun and get the kids outside and moving! I would recommend these for any age (well maybe not under 5)...
You can purchase Heelys online or in a local retailer
