You may have seen kids gliding around shopping centres or around your town, or you may have seen Heelys TV. If you want a pair of trainer skates then you have come to the right site!
The trainers or roller skates are called Heelys, and Heelys Skates are a new craze sweeping the nation at the moment… Put simply they are a pair of trainers with a wheel inserted into the heel, like a roller skate which allows the wearer to effortlessly roll across the ground, walk and even run!
The reason they are so versatile is the roller wheel in the heel is removable so when taken out the Heely trainers act as a normal pair of trainers, so you get a pair of skates and a pair of trainers for the price of 1!
Heelys for Adults
Don't forget Heelys are not for only for children but they can also be purchased in adult sizes.
Impressed!? Wait till you see them in action - people will stop and stare as you glide across the ground in the your Heelys Skates!

What size should I get?
Sizes come in childrens small 11 sizes up to adult 12 sizes.
Heelys Skates come up a bit small so it's best to go up 1 size from that of your normal shoe…
This will give the wearer a bit more comfort and allow a bit of growing room (extra insoles are useful to accommodate for space in the shoe)
Please note: Heelys do not produce half sizes!
If you are a half size it's best to go up 1½ sizes (example: if you are UK 1½ it would be best to go up to a UK 3 – extra insoles would be a must in this case).
So many models to choose from! Which one do I buy?
Probably the easiest question to answer…
The best thing to do is work out what set-up you think would be best for your level and then run down the list of features on each model and find the one that best matches…don't forget colour – pick your favourite! Prices range from £30 to £60
Some Heelys have 1 wheel, some have 2…What's that about?
Heelys have 2 different wheel set-ups which relate to your experience…
This set-up is better for people who have had experience using Heelys or generally have good balance… These allow you to go faster and turn quicker
This set-up is better for beginners as the 2 wheels act like training wheels on a bike…They basically allow the user a little bit more balance helping to gain confidence of use..
Tip – Be mindful when choosing a set-up as it not advisable to use 2 wheel Heelys Trainers with only 1 wheel inserted.

Buying your Heely Trainer Skates
It is best to start of with a pair of basic Heelys, these trainer skates have two wheels in the sole and are slightly easier to heely in, making them the ideal pair to begin with. They also start from size 12 so they are really good for tiny feet.
Heelys Classic Black/White/Blue
Sizes 11, 12, 13, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Heelys Fresh Black/Pink Kids
Sizes 11, 12, 13, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
NOTE: It is advisable to buy Heelys Skate shoes one size bigger than your child's school shoe, although great fun, they can be an expensive treat so we personnally feel it is worth getting a pair that is going to fit for more than a few weeks.

Bearings - What does the ABEC rating mean?
Without getting too complicated the rating is relevant to the speed of the bearing…The higher the number, the better the bearing, the faster you go…It's that simple
Learn to Skate in Heelys Skates
- Find a railing to hang on to. Lift the ball of your foot and find your balance point. Try this on one foot, then repeat with both feet.
- Begin with your feet together.
- Step forward, leading with your strong leg, and balance on the heel assembly.
- While the strong leg is balanced on the heel,
- Use the trailing leg to push your body forward; then quickly lift the ball of your foot and balance on the wheel.
- Pull yourself along the railing at first, while finding the balance point.
- And to make sure you don't bust, keep your trailing foot directly behind the leading foot.
- Hold a handrail or door jam while finding your balance point.
- Lock the knee of the trailing foot.
- Keep one foot directly behind the other.
- Go over cracks at an angle.
- To Heel faster run into the motion instead of stepping or pushing.
- If you think you're going to do a face plant, just put your toes down and walk out of Heeling motion.
Heelys Skates are essentially an ordinary shoe (trainer, sneaker), except that in their heels , the shoes have a single wheel embedded in the sole . Thus, the wearer can walk, run, or - by shifting their weight to their heels - roll. Advanced Heelys users can perform tricks such as soft braking, which is the process of lowering the front section of rear foot, gently, to increase friction and slow to a stop.
When worn daily, it typically takes about a month to master the wheeled shoes. The basics, wheeling in a straight line, can be easily learned within a few minutes. More advanced moves, like 360's, 180's, aerial trickery and the like require focus and persistence to attain.
How to Install Heely Wheels
- Use your Heely tool to pop out the sole saver
- Set the wheel into the bracket
- plae the Heely wheel down onto a sturdy surface and push down to pop the wheel into place
- Inspect the wheels and axles to ensure they are seated straight into the bracket so that they wheels spin freely
- Stomp down on each wheel to make sure they are locked securely into place
Remember with 2 wheeled heelys the larger wheel always goes in the slot at the back of the shoe, the smaller wheel goes in the front wheel slot.
How to Remove Heely Wheels
- Hold the show with the sole facing outward
- Push hard with both thumbs on the side of the wheel until one axle begins to come out
- After one end of the axle is partially out, turn the shoe around and push the other side of the wheel to remove it.
Before you skate in Heelys
Before you skate in your Heelys check that the wheels are not worn down, dented or cracked. Also practice braking to make sure you knoe how to stop safely.
Wearing and Caring for your Heelys Trainer Skates
We would advise that children wear the appropiate protection gear, in case of any bumps or falls.
Once your child has mastered the art of Heelys trainers it is great to watch their confidence grow as they move onto turns and jumps, and don't forget we can get them in mums and dads sizes too!
Try not to wear your Heelys trainers out on wet surfaces. The wheels in the trainers have a sophisicated bearing system inside, and Heelying on wet surfaces could allow the bearings to become damaged.
Do not heely over gravel. The small stones could become jammed in the wheel mechanism, thus locking the wheels.
Always check the wheels move freely before putting your Heelys trainers on.
Heelys are not machine washable.
