I bought my Heelys almost one
year ago and I still love them! I really like when kids look amazed when they
see me whizzing by and I also like when they ask what they are! Long live

ace, i had cruzshuz for xmas and for my bday on 15 may. i got bliss 2 heelys,
my cruz shuz died because i pulled the sloe off so i could wear my heelys to
school. i am going in to the academy into s1 so i can't wear my heelys, so im
getting new shoes but right now i wear my heelys all the time. i can do 360,
180 and can go backwards. i go to xtreme sports down at the beach and used to
go to tesco in 'em but can't any more cos a boy fell over and tesco banned em.
i have only fallen once before i got cruzshuz at xmas i had heely slide that
was my first pair and heely atomic but my pink bliss 2 have been the best. i
was in john lewis and 2 oaps stopped me and asked where i got them and how much
they were and if i could show them what i could do!
Hello, I have just
brought Heelys and I have fallen over once but i'm slowly getting used to it
and it's really great because while my friends have to run, I can skate. They
are great for walking, running and skating, they're brilliant and I love

Hi, I thought I would
drop you a line just to add my support for Heelys, I bought my son and daughter
a pair each for Christmas, and at first they struggled to get the hang of them,
however within a week they were much improved, and how much joy I got from
seeing them getting on so well with them - my son especially it was as if he
was born to heel! He is so confident on them, performing jumps and turns and
speeding with the greatest of ease, then 1 day I get a call from their mother
he's broken his arm! I took him up to hospital and yes they confirmed he
had a green stick fracture to his left arm, Their mother went spare and blamed
it on the shoes and instantly banned them from wearing them! Whilst speaking to
the nurse in charge of plastering she informed me that this was the first
Heely-related fracture she had dealt with and she's been doing it for 20 years!
She then went on to say keep on heeling! She gets more injuries through
skateboards then bikes and mostly from football injuries! Though this did not
help my son as the ban remained from his mother. He has just had his plaster
removed and he can't wait to get back in his Heelys. I know corporately we
would not like to advertise the fact of injuries occurring, however I believe
that accidents do happen and the joy Heelys have brought my kids and myself far
outweigh the possible risk of injury.

Hi, i am Montana and
i am ten years old. I have Heelys and i have learned some tricks. It is hard to
land a trike but if you practice you will get better. I got Heelys for my
birthday in august 2006. And i just fell in feb, the scratch is gone now but
yesterday, march 8, i fell off my bike but i am tuff and i can handle it. i
don't even cry cause i am a tomboy!
Heelys are the best ever. I
got mine for my b-day on Jan 22. People ask where I got them. I hardly fall
anymore. I try to wear them wherever we go.

I love my Heelys they
are cool, I never fall down. When I go anywhere all the other kids ask me what
they r. I love em.

We've only had our Heelys since Christmas but we just can't
get enough of them. Malik has already been doing basic ramps and tricks on his
Rebels. Being a size 11, I didn't think I would find a pair so my slides won't
last too much longer. I recently hurt my back playing rugby and Heelys have
been a great way of getting moving. Worth the money definitely. Great

Steve. Keep up the good work, how about some more videos? My Heelys go
everywhere with me, I've had them for over a year now and am on my second pair
(sheer wear and tear). Best shoes/skates on the market, I reckon!

bought Heelys for our son two months ago and have been utterly amazed. At the
time we thought they were an expensive fad. Now we see him skating around with
enormous confidence, better physical coordination, more confidence with his
friends (who are in awe that he's got Heelys and they haven't :-) ) - the list
goes on. the best £55 we've spent on him in ages. And we'd have had to
pay £30 for trainers anyway, so really they only cost us an extra
£25. Highly recommended!

bought a pair of Heeleys for my little girls Lydia who is aged 6. I was a
little hesitant at first because she couldnt really use her roller skates
properly but she couldn't wait to use them. After about 4 times of wearing them
we took a trip to the local supermarket on a quiet morning and hey presto she
started using them properly. She wizzes in and out of everyone and we find
ourselves being stopped daily by people wondering where we got them, how much
we paid and do we have the web address......... It used to take me ages to get
the children to come shopping with me, now I dont need to ask, they ask me

My heelys r awesome
I love 2 go 2 tesco and whiz down the aisle its so fun. they're quite
expensive but I get loads of use out of mine. Heelys rock!

Heelys are a
bit heavy to be worn as trainers all the time, especially in hot weather, but I
do wear them quite often, carrying the wheels in my bag for snapping in
whenever I get to a really smooth pavement or park.
Ellie Harris, Reading UK
I wear mine
all the time, when it's not too hot, it's really neat to whizz around shops and
malls. I know Heelys are expensive (Dad helped me), but I get soooooo much fun
out of them!

had an anxious three weeks with our Heelys, back in January 2006, having bought
them for our son and daughter, both aged nine. Lots of bruises and even a visit
to the hospital after one spill. But we're out the other side now and both
children wear them nearly all the time. Even to school most days - with the
wheels removed, of course - they pop the wheels back in for the short skate

Heelys are cool,
I can do twists and tricks, but best of all, I just amaze my mates by being
able to skate where they have to walk or run!
Jean and Pete King, Bristol
a pair of Heelys for our daughter, aged 7, and were very hesitant at first as
she seemed very shaky and fell over often. They seemed like a disastrous
purchase but incredibly after a couple of days came a turning point and she
'found her balance' - and she hasn't fallen over once since! Now she loves them
and seems very confident and better balanced physically!
