Little Lady was extremely excited to find she was trying out some brand spanking new Heelys, something she’s been asking for for a while however up until now her feet have be too little for her to wear them. Now her feet have grown enough for her to try them she couldn’t wait to get them out of the box when we were sent some by Skates to review.
The Heely’s came in a brightly coloured box and contained 1 pair of Heelys X2 Fresh Shoes in Fuchsia / Navy with the Navy X2 logo to the heel and the white Heelys logo to the tongue. The uppers are a canvas material.
The inner lid of the box contains step by step instructions on how to swap the heel plugs that come already inserted into the bottom of the Heely’s into the wheels themselves. There is also a QR code that when scanned takes you to a video on how to use your new Heelys.
They have a waffle grip to the bottom to aid with grip.
There is a tool provided for easy removal of the plastic plugs which then leaves the hole for you to pop the wheels inside. These are a 2 wheel style, there are also 1 wheel styles available. Line up the wheels with the brackets and with the palm of the hand press them firmly in.
Lace them up and they’re ready to go. My daughter is actually really good with her balance having done gymnastics and took to it well, unlike my son who really struggled with his for some time before it ‘clicked’. She has practised and practised and is doing really well, we haven’t used them out in town or anything yet but she is getting more and more confident with them by the day.
My daughter is a size 11 and the size 11 in these fit her perfectly. They feature a thick white rubber toecap which was a good job since for the first few tries she dragged the back foots toes across the floor whilst trying to get it to do what she wanted!
All in all we were delighted with these Heelys they’ll continue to give her hours and hours of fun which makes them well worth the money if bought as an Xmas/Birthday present or even just something to get them off Youtube and out exercising over the Summer Holidays!
The Heelys X2 Fresh are currently priced at £39.95 on the Skates website and also come in Black/Pink colourway and run in sizes 11-5.
