My daughter and I were each able to review a pair of Hx2 Heelys Skate Shoes. I knew my daughter would love them because her dad has a pair & she loves watching him skate around on them. However, I was a little skeptical about reviewing a pair for myself and almost decided not to. I wasn’t sure I needed a pair of shoes with wheels. It turns out I really did need a pair . I never knew I wanted a pair of Heely’s until I tried them. They are so much fun!
“Heelys wheeled footwear allows the user to seamlessly transition from walking or running to rolling by simply shifting weight to the heel. Users can also transform Heelys wheeled footwear into street shoes by removing the wheel and replacing the heel cavities (adaptors) with heel plugs. Heelys wheeled footwear provides users with a unique combination of fun and style that differentiates it from other footwear and wheeled sports products.”
Now yes, I am a mother of 3, but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t be having fun once in a while right? When I first put my Hx2 (Heely’s with 2 wheels instead of one) on, I almost fell down. They are tricky in the beginning, but it only took me a few minutes to get the technique down. I was skating across my kitchen in no time . I will put them on just for fun while I am making dinner, or cleaning the house. Will I wear them around town??? Probably not. But maybe on walk with my family, or just in the privacy of my own kitchen. You really need to try these for yourself (I won’t tell anyone). Do beware that their sizes run large. I had to go a full size down to get the correct fit.
My daughter is still trying to get the hang of her pair of Hx2’s. Most often, she will wear them without the wheels. They are really cute & whenever she does figure out how to skate with them, I think they will keep her occupied for a long time! Maybe we will go skating together??!! I think it’s great that they made a pair of Heelys that are a bit easier for younger children to wear & skate with. Two wheels are much easier than one.
**Don’t forget to always where protective gear when wearing Heelys skate shoes.
“The Hx2 has two removable wheels in each shoe making it ideal for younger wearers. Not only is it easier to maintain balance, but wearers of the Hx2 do not require as much leg strength to lift up their toes to skate. As they get the hang of skating, though, the Hx2 can be converted into a regular pair of Heelys for a more challenging ride simply by removing one of the wheels. Pop out both wheels and the Hx2 becomes a regular street shoe.”
2x as easy, 2x as fun!!

- Useful & fun all-in-one
