began by selling a little known product called Heelys.
founder, had received a pair of Heelys that summer as a gift from his family
and wherever he went he found himself being asked where these shoes could be
purchased. With the support of his family, Flywalk was born, and Heelys began
to be sold in the UK.
the Heelys x2 dual up shoes in a silver purple rainbow design. The first thin
that attracted me to these Heelys was the pattern. It’s vibrant, colourful and
fun. They stand out from the crowd and look they look cool when worn!
weekend trips around town or to the park. The come with speedy ABEC 3 wheels.
They’re made of synthetic with padded tongue and collar for optimal comfort and
protection. I was very pleased with the quality of the Heelys, they feel sturdy

well as a rubber toe cap. It’s super easy to fit the wheels and there are instructions on how to do this on the inside of the box.
I love that these can be worn as normal shoes as well. They
come with wheel plugs and a removal tool to convert them from Heelys to shoes.

They have two wheels on each shoe the same as the rainbow shoes above. These

they’ll be whizzing around in no time!
