We received these the day after we ordered them. They were too small by about a full size. So we did the exchange online and they were delivered the next day! So great! Love Zappos. The shoes are super cool too! Definitely has a high lift inside making the sole seem thick, but I don't think there's any way around that. All around a great shoe and a great experience with the purchase.

I ordered from Zappos because the offered free shipping 4 days before Christmas. I took the risk and ordered my son's Heelys through them. The package came in perfect time! I was amazed. The shoes fit perfectly. They look exactly like the picture. It was the best price that I could find online.

I was happy to find these in adult size! They are great! My son (13) was kidding when he asked for Heelys for Christmas. Boy was he surprised, but loves them and wears them all the time!

The shoes are sturdy enough to withstand all the punishment that a 6 year old boy will inflict on them.

My 7 year old son had been asking for Heelys for awhile. He was so excited when he opened a present on Christmas morning and found Heelys inside. He put them on immediately and has worn them everyday since. I was thrilled when I found Heelys on the Zappos website for less than other sites. I was also pleased to discover that the order arrived very quickly. I will definitely order from Zappos again.

First, let state that I'm 14 years old. I remember about 6 years ago when Heelys first came out, I got them about a month later, and I was in love. After most places started banning them, I stopped getting them, until I saw these. I loved the color, style, and look of these shoes the minute I saw them, (however, color seems a tiny bit darker in person then on screen, but I still love them). So, I looked around, and they were the cheapest on Zappos, not even Heelys.com had the same price. Now that all that stuff is out of the way, lets get to the shoes themselves. The day they arrived (which was exactly on time), I opened them immediately. The box includes the amazing looking shoes, 2 blue wheels, 2 things that go inside the heel when not Heelying, and a metal/plastic tool for removing the wheels. As I put the shoes on, my feet were greeted with instant comfort. The fit on the shoes are perfect, the arch support is great, one thing I did notice that suprised me is that the blue area at the bottom of the shoe, your foot doesn't go in there. So when you put these shoes on, you magicly grow an inch. Now, performance. These shoes exceed expectation. When you are able to heely fairly well, you can just glide for about two and half minutes when you take 2 steps, and if you get a running start, you will so fast, hardly anyone will be able to keep up, I guarantee it. The day I got them, I tried them out in Shoprite, and man, they were so fun. Now, I will enjoy grocery shopping. Also, if you enjoy showing off, these shoes turn so many heads. However, before all the sweet riding, you have to learn the basics. I'm telling you this from experience, it will take a good bit of practice, so try not to discouraged. I hope you enjoyed my review, and hopefully, when I'm Heelying, I will see some of you out Heelying too.

I have ordered from Zappos on 2 or 3 occasions and each one has been exceptional. Customer service is outstanding. This a company that stands by its word and its products. Zappos is my go to on line for shoes. I highly recommend the use of their service. You will not be disappointed.

Heelys run small so I had to get my daughter one size larger. She is a size 2 but got a size 3 which fit perfect. The wheels are easy to install and remove. She loves the shoes and it did not take her long to learn how to use them. I would recommend them.

I bought Heelys for my granddaughter, for her birthday. She had a large party with lots of family and friends. When she opened this box she ran over, jumped in my lap and hugged and hugged me! Reaction, priceless!

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!

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.

So here's the deal. They fit well try to go one size bigger then you usually do. I don't have much athletic skill so i haven't been able to successfully skate with them. But they function just fine as shoes ha.

Bought these for 4 grandsons. They love them. Shoes are a little heavy and clumsy and fit is just OK, but fun factor overrules. I needed to exchange several times until I got the right sizes, but Zappos is great for that.

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.

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.

I like these Heelys because of the design. But the wheels were a little defective, either that or the shoes were. The wheels seemed too small and would not go in the heel at all, but when they did, the kept falling out and I never got to heel around as easy as usual. Overall they were ok.

The shoes were good overall. However, the lifespan of the wheels is not very long. I used these to get from class to class accross my college campus and they worked well for about a months. However, one of the wheels wore out unevenly and developed a flat wich made it almost impossible to move. I now need to order replacement wheels, however it was great while it lasted.
