I have been testing a pair of Heelys for about four weeks now. I really like them, but it took some time to get used to them. You need to be very careful, because they could be dangerous. Why, you ask? If you don't know how to ride and you try to ride them, you may fall back and get really hurt. I had never tried a pair of Heelys before, and I had to practice and get used to them. At first, I thought I was going to fall flat on my face, or on my behind.

If you're a girl and you're used to heels, you might be better because there's a little heel in them. If you are clumsy, they're not the best choice for you.

Are you interested in what I liked about them? The big positive was you don't have to walk everywhere. If your legs get tired, you can just go right on the heels and roll away. It has been a lot of fun rolling around instead of walking. I love sneakers, and wound up really liking these. I also found that they have high-top Heelys, which are great for winter.
