PRODUCT DETAILS:Heelys is best known for its popular “wheel-in-the-heel” shoes, which allow users to seamlessly transition from walking or running to rolling – otherwise known as “Heeling” – by simply shifting weight to the heel. An instructional video on “Heeling” can be found at Heelys.com. Customers can transform their Heelys into regular street shoes by removing the wheel and replacing the heel adaptors with heel plugs, which are included with every pair. HEELYS HX2 Each shoe in the HX2 product line has two removable wheels for better balance and control, making it an ideal choice for less experienced skaters. In addition, the HX2 models do not require as much leg strength – younger users can lift their toes up easily and skate more comfortably. After wearers become more accustomed to skating, HX2 models can be converted into a traditional pair of Heelys by removing one of the wheels. Pop out both wheels and the HX2 becomes a regular street shoe. HEELYS NANO The Nano works in tandem with Heelys shoes to bring wearers the ultimate skating experience – enabling them to move farther, faster and longer than ever before. The Nano is a special board that links into Heelys’ patented shoe bracket. To use, simply remove the wheel from a Heelys shoe and snap the wheel bracket into place. Designed for use on a single foot, many people feel the innovative board provides the same kinds of sensations and freedoms as slalom skiing or wakeboarding. Heelys are sold in sporting goods and specialty stores nationwide and in more than 70 countries around the world. Heelys, Inc. is a company founded on innovation. It designs, markets and distributes its action sports-oriented products to the youth market under the Heelys ® brand. The company's primary product, Heelys wheeled footwear, is a patented dual-purpose skate shoe that incorporates a stealth, removable wheel in the heel.
