If you have never heard of Heelys before, they are shoes with a wheel that pops into the heel part. The ones she got have only one wheel but they also come with two wheels, and now also available is an inline footboard. There are tons of colors and styles to choose from, for both guys and girls, it was actually really hard for me to choose. Heelys can also be worn as regular shoes by popping the wheel back out in as little as 3 seconds. The ones I picked for her are the Sassy
They're purple and sparkly, have rhinestones on the toe, and are very girly and cute. Totally her style! Here is a short video that shows you how to use Heelys.
What I love about Heelys is that she can go out and skate and play with out having to lug around a skateboard or skates, everything she needs is right there in her shoe. And if she does decide to pop the wheels out, they're small enough to fit in a purse, backpack or even a larger pocket. Check out one of their latest styles, for those of you who love the look of canvas shoes
As with any skating activity, safety gear such as a helmet, elbow and knee pads are always recommended.
