This is my 14-year-old's second pair of Heelys Double Threats. The first pair was stolen at a track meet! He loves these shoes!

I was extremely pleased with my puchase of this product. I was unaware that these Heelys run a size small but with the quick return and exchange it worked out great. I bought one size larger for a good, comfortable fit. My grandson loves them and the colors. Would recommend them to others.

Product was easy to order, came quickly, well packed and in good condition. My 13 year old son is thrilled (though still trying to learn how to use them without falling!).

I bought the Heelys for my grandson. Zappos price was much cheaper than a local big box store, plus free shipping.

My sons wore Heelys when they were young, now they are 15 & 17 and had recently been talking about adult Heelys. I bought them each a pair for Christmas and they both love them! The sizing was right on, and the kids say they are better fit and quality than the ones they wore 9-10 years ago.

My 11 year old son absolutely loves these! They look durable and made of quality materials. The first delivery did not fit so I called Zappos to exchange them and the new pair was delivered the following day! And as a bonus, I was upgraded to VIP status! Excellent service. Keep it up, Zappos!

I bought these for my 10 year grandchild. He is not very coordinated but was zipping along in a short time. We used a Youtube video to help him get the hang of them. He is really enjoying them and he likes the way they look. I like the fact that he can wear them with or without the wheels.

I purchased these shoes as a gift for my grandson. We were pleased with the appearance as well as the fit of the shoe. The shoes were the same as they appeared in the ad. We will purchase shoes from the company again. Well pleased!

I bought these Heely's for my sons 18th birthday. He absolutely loves them. He is a senior in HS and plans on wearing them to get to classes more quickly. He says they are fast and likes that they look just like tennis shoes.

Got these for my 9 yr old daughter, it was difficult to figure her size 6 in womens to boys sizing, We subtracted two sizes and added one, to get a boys size 5 which fit perfect. Again, subtract two sizes from your girls size, then add one cos these shoes must always be ordered one size larger. She loves them, wears them everywhere, she turns heads as she glides by!

I loved the service of Zappos. First the shoe came with the wrong size of wheels. The wheels didn't fit so it was impossible to use them. I called and they sent me another pair for free and I didn't have to return the first one. The shoe fits nice and my kid is in love with it. A little bulky but this is how Heelys are.

In a world where walking has no boundaries, one can glide along the Earth's surface. This shoe gives its users the ability to float among a crowd of bobbing heads. I used these during The Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas and in New York. They were a blast! I was hurting after a few days of raging the track and melting people's faces. They do have their limitations though. The wheels must be snapped in and out and they don't work too well on rough surfaces. As for comfort, there is basically no arch support which makes wearing the shoes with wheels for long periods of time tough. Pros: Move faster than the person who's living life at a slower pace. NASCAR! Be cooler than the person who wishes they were you. OG Heely steez! Stop lying to yourself...you want these shoes...you know it. Drop the beat! Cons: really?...just get the shoe already!

Brands I'd also recommend: One word...NASCAR!

I just bought them for my little cousin and you already know that I like them and he liked them. Teens can wear them but I think kids should mostly buy them. Hey, all kids that are reading my review, buy this shoe - it really helps you get around.

My son loves these heels and practically sleeps in them! Took him a couple days to get the hang of it, but now glides everywhere -- he was the envy of everyone at the San Francisco airport.

My son loves these shoes and has loads of fun with them. Definitely order a size larger like sizing recommendation states. My son wears a size 3 consistently, but we ordered a 4 and they fit well.

Amazing shoe! Only took about a day or two to get used to it; now I use it everywhere! I was surprised to find places like king soopers, the mall, tradesmart and public parks all being okay with the use of Heely's. A lot of sites say the sizes run small and to buy one size too large, but mine was perfect at my size (we bought one 1 size too large before and it was unwieldy). People of all ages should get one of these! A side note, these do not have huge ankle support, it's more like a skater shoe (but I haven't noticed any problems and I've never owned skater shoes in the past).

My son who is 6 wanted these shoes so much. We ordered them on a Tuesday night and got them on Thursday afternoon. Zappos is always great when it comes to shipping it very promptly. And I love the fact that I have the assurance that if I ordered the wrong size, I can ship it back for free. As far as the rating for the shoes, I'd say that it is a quality pair of shoes. You have the option of wearing it with or without the wheels. My son had to practice for about a week to learn to skate with it. He is still learning, though he dies not wear it all the time. The shoes look very nice. The only downside is that it's a little on the heavy side and it has thick soles, but I don't see how it can be made any other way since it's a skating type of shoe. My son wears a size 11 shoe and I read to order the next size up (they don't sell it in 11 anyway) and it fits well. My son loves them.

Great shoe. Sizes were spot on, so buy a size larger for growth spurts. Perfect for kid's style cross-training: heeling, skating, running, biking...definitely purchase again.

Great looking shoe. Our son loves them. He is still trying to figure out how to use them and they are not that easy to walk in with the wheels in but the wheels are easty to take out for regular use.

Ordering through Zappos was very easy and since the shoes do not come in half sizes, I appreciated the free return shipping policy, just in case. The order was received very quickly during the busy Christmas season. My 15 year old son is the envy of his friends. They all had Heelys when they were younger, and now they are jealous that he has a pair with an adult-sized foot.
