From classic "old school" styling, with the traditional single wheel design, to the sleek, double wheeled design of the H2 models and beyond to the new age Nano, an inline footboard for serious skaters, Heelys has a style and a look for every kid on your list this holiday season.
My "all things boy" testing crew was all over the opportunity to try out a pair of Heelys. When I had asked about his interest, I received the look that puts every mother to shame. The kind that says, "Poor Mom, you are soooo out of touch!" combined with a heavy sigh and eye roll combination. It's all good, Moms! Now you know, too: Heelys are happening!

Upon receiving the Heelys, I was pleased to find that the construction of the Edge style is nothing less than sturdy; the insole is thick, cushy and comfortable. Most importantly, installing the wheels, one per shoe, was a snap.
Of course, while my son was ready and raring to go, Mom insisted we take a moment to explore the Heelys site, viewing both the Heelys Playbook for important safety tips, as well as watching the How To Skate (Heeling) with Heelys video.
Armed with all the vital knowledge, my son was ready to put his new Heelys to the test!

|And away he goes!|
