Hey guys! I havent been on here in a while but what ever. I was at the mall the other day and I saw that the shoes heely's with the wheels in the back are back in the stores. They are only 60 dollars. I was wondering if I should pick up a pair or are they not worth it?
GOT FOAM?!

I think those are the gayest shoes ever. I mean if I saw you skating around in those, I'd call you a fag. And 60 dollars for shoes that I would make fun of you for are a waste of money in my opinion. Do what you wish, but for 60 dollars pick yourself up some nice normal shoes.

I've never tried them myself, but I think my feet would be too big. I kinda like the idea, at least to get to point A or to point B. How old are you, sneak? I did see some 18 year old guy wearing them at one point, though so you wouldn't be by yourself. You can try them on at the store, no? Just do what you want. There's always the return policy.

Edited out because of some very good points a few posts down.(Ninjz's point that is)
But they do piss me off when, some idiot is using them at school between classes in a hall with 1000+ people in it.

I think people who actually bother to get pissed off about other people's shoes have some real issues they need to discuss with their thediddler.

I think I need some shoes for work because the soles on mine cracked right in half. Probably not the wheel kind of shoes though, because I'd fall on my ass.

I also think Uncle Hammer is a fag*

Isnt the fact you NERF not cool enough that you need to call someone a "fag" of all things for what shoes they wear? I think you're a fag for using the handle Uncle Hammer and NERFing. Are you going to change your user name and stop NERFing now? Just because you dont like someone elses fun doesnt make you cooler.

I have these shoes. They're pretty cool. I live in OH so when ever I go to a Pittsburgh Pirates game, I always slide down the rotunda. It's pretty fun having all these people looking at you like what you have in your shoes. I losts the wheels in it though. Oh and check eBay first, they have alot of pairs. That's where I got mine 34.99. No shipping because the guy worked at a local JCPenny so I picked them up.
So in closing, they're good shoes, but I wouldn't spend $60 on them.

I have a pair and I'm 18, they are pretty fun to mess around on but the best thing is, if you take the wheel out they are pretty damn comfortable.
I payed roughly $65US for mine and I still think they were worth it.
The look on peoples faces is worth at least $50 some of the times.

I decided to get them but do you guys think I should get these ones http://cgi.ebay.com/...1QQcmdZViewItem

Those have a grind plate but do you think they look like little kids shoes? Or these with no grind plate

The third choice looks pretty hot. They look better without the plate.

Davis- I read that book awhile back. It's a pretty good book addressing racism. Right now i'm reading "Uncle Tom's cabin" ;) Weird.

Anyway about the wheely shoes, I would most definitely buy those shoes but they've got quite a heavy pricetag. I'd probably kill myself though because i'm really clumsy.

My old friend in Maryland had those shoes. I tried em' on and they seemed more comforatble than the normal Vans that I wear everyday. I have yet to get a new pair of DCs. I might conpensate with Heely's though. I remember seeing the guy that invinted them on Invint This on G4TechTV. He had a whole bunch of kids test them for him. Personally, I think they are WAY better than the other kind of roller shoes. They are faster to pull out, not to mention easier to catch yourself from falling if you lose balance. I highly suggest buying these pair of shoes for their confortability and fun aspects.

I suppose they are kind of cool in some regards, assuming one can actually rollerblade. I can't. My house is surrounded by way too many hills so I never bothered. But even if you could, how practical are they anyway? I would imagine that getting them wet would be bad, and if you stepped in mud or anything it would be annoying as anything to clean the gunk off, since it would probably get up in the wheels.

Yeah, definitely not good for off-roading or even getting through dirty parking lots or something. There's a ridiculous amount of kids in my school that have these, all little kids(kindergarten through grade 9). They make me angry. Same with mullets.

60 dollars for shoes that I would make fun of you for are a waste of money in my opinion.

Funny how that's coming out of a skater's mouth; skate shoes are hella expensive. I'm talking $75-100 for a pair.

Davis and Uncle Hammer, you're both retards.

I have Heelys, they're fun for messing around. You can't skate in them though. They're hella comfortable, unlike my VANS.

Beaver, cleaning out the wheels is simple. The axle is like a two-piece screw, you just twist it and the wheel and bearings come out. Wipe it with a tissue, put some graphite on it, and twist it back together. Simple as that.
