These are cool. My kids had Heelys for years when they were little. Now they are rediscovering them as teenagers. Bought two pair. One came with a defective wheel. Zappos.com went above and beyond to get the situation corrected so fast it made my head spin. Quality product and excellent service. Highly recommended.

The Heelys shoes are amazing! I ride them home from school every afternoon! They are very comfortable, but for that comfort it collects the fabric from your socks when you wear them. Besides that though, the shoes are great!

The shoes appear to be made of quality. They fit my child great. The wheels and bearing roll easily. Nothing else to say. Very fast shipping. Thanks Zappos.

I love Heelys, and Zappos was a very good reseller for me, but mine came defective. This is especially bad since I paid to have them shipped to Europe. Zappos refunded me completely for the shoes and did not demand that I return them, and Heelys is issuing me a new pair (however, they are out of stock of this model). These look great and feel like they would be very nice had they not been defective. I will review these as though they shipped in perfect condition. I have worn Heelys for years, and learned that because of the room they have to make for the wheel well, they don't have much padding in the heel. I have used memory foam insoles for years with them and they work great hand in hand. This model doesn't have much room above the toes, and there was a little pinching in the left shoe on the pinky toe but it may be caused by the defect mine arrived with. With a memory foam insole I would give these a 4, but as shipped comfort is a moderate 3. Great looking shoe at great price, and the most durable line of shoes I have ever encountered. (I wore a single pair of Heely Hurricanes as my main shoe for 6 years before they needed replacement.) I recommend any Heely and ordering from Zappos.

I'm very pleased with my order. It didn't come early, like so many other reviews I've read, but it wasn't late either. It showed up looking like the picture, and fit perfectly, and works well. I also found this to be the best price for the product I wanted after searching the net. I couldn't be more pleased. I'll defintely do more business with Zappos.com.

My 12-year old son has been wearing his Heelys Straight Up Sneakers for about 6 months now, and he loves them! He can wear them as regular sneakers to school and as "skaters" during free/play time. He says that inserting and removing the roller is easy. These Heelys are well-constructed, very comfortable to wear, and have held up great over time. I highly recommend them.

My grandson loved them. It's a little tricky changing the wheels to just plain shoes, but he loves them. The only problem is the back of the shoe feels like cardboard & once it bent it was hard to straighten out.

This is the first pair of Heelys my son has actually outgrown instead of outworn. Perhaps it is because he lost them under the bed for a couple of months, but he has had them for a year now and they are still in good enough shape to pass down to a friend. A great choice for a busy boy. I am a loyal Zappos.com shopper for our Heelys. Customer service is absolutely fabulous!

My kid loves these. Unfortunately, the wheels are too hard for him to take out (a pretty strong 11-year old), so I have to help out. Lots of fun, though.

My son loves Heely's. This is his 3rd pair. I love the blue bottoms and the blue wheel. The only downside is that they are not leather and get a little hot. My son could care less, but his socks gets a bit sweaty. They hold up incredibly and my son is really tough on his shoes.

I got these shoes about one month ago. At first it was hard, but I kept trying until I got it. I love these shoes and I wear them all the time. I even wear them to school and just take the wheels out before I go in. When I grow out of these I hope my mom will buy me a new pair.

I bought a pair of Heelys for my daughter 7 and my son 9. The shoes are made well but my kids are not mastering the art of skating with them. I guess it just depends on how coordinated your child is. They have lost interest in them for now.

I have wanted Heelys since I was a kid, and I finally decided to splurge on some now at 22. The shoes themselves are great. I love the feel and the colors are prefect. The one thing that I am not used to yet is the actually wheel on each of the shoes. I thought I would just be able to put them on and start rolling around, but it is a lot harder than it looks. I just need to practice and if I can't get the hang of it I can return them within 1 year (which is awesome!).

My granddaughter loves her Heelys Straight Up. They are attractive, sturdy and comfortable. Zappos is awesome. I ordered the wrong size. I called and they sent the right size the next day and the return of the ones I made a mistake on was simple. Great customer service. I will definitely shop here again.

Brands I'd also recommend: This is the only such product I have purchased.

I bought a Heely's for my grand son overseas for Christmas. He loved it but when he tried it on it was too tight for comfort. I said no problem cause I remembered you mentioned that you would return any problem item. So here it came back and I hope Zappos will satisfy my grandson's need soon. Waiting grandma. Thanks.

I am amazed with Zappos' quick service. It was so easy ordering and I had to exchange my item for another size. I had them the next day even before I sent the purchased ones back. I was so pleased with the quality of shoes as well. Thanks!

The most wonderful experience in internet purchasing I have ever had (and I do a lot!). I had to return shoes I ordered because I ordered them too small. They were returned at Zappos expense, the new ones were sent out before they received the returned ones and there was no questions asked. What a wonderful customer service attitude they have. Can't find that much anymore. Thanks Zappos. You have a customer for life!
