22 Apr, 2020

To all the pre-‘90s kids out there who grew up without wheeling their way through malls, we’re sorry.

We’re sorry you missed out on this notorious, memory-making shoe; a turn-of-the-century icon if you will.

But to make up for what you might have missed, we now bring a whole heap of Heelys to the kids of today,
right here at Number One Shoes.

If you’re new to the Heelys game, there’s a few things you should know before lacing up and skating off,
from assembly to technique.

Follow these simple steps and you’ll be a pro in no time. Then, you can give this #HeelysAtHome Toosie Slide Challenge a go!

Wheels In:

Time to get rolling! Follow these directions to pop out the heel plug and pop in the wheels.

How To Heely:

Step 1:

Start on smooth flat surface with feet shoulder width apart.

Step 2:

Find which foot feels most comfortable out front.

Step 3:

Lift toes of front foot and use back foot to push.

Step 4:

Now lift toes of your back foot, and you’re away!

Step 5:

To stop, lift toes up so heels are touching the floor.

Tips:

Practice while holding onto someone else.

Make sure you keep one foot out front.

Wear a helmet, wrist guards, knee & elbow pads for safety.

Skate only on smooth, dry surfaces.

Now that you’re armed with all you need to know about Heelys, check out our fun designs online and start practicing. Happy Heeling!
