    I think there's a specific reason they don't make them in adult shoe sizes.

    Can you guess what reason that is?

    I believe they are known as "heelies", alas I share the opinion of the previous posters but I can point out that there exists shoes with roller blade additions that do come in adult sizes.
    Quite where you would find them I am unsure (least I heard was 3 years ago and that a place in London sells them).

    Come on admit it you've all wondered what they're like [​IMG] In the smaller adult sizes you might have a chance, but I doubt they'd go up to an 8, let alone a 12.

    Well, my primary pair of shoes are a pair of Heelys(I also have some punk sinspired ones for my skateboarding). I am 19 and I love 'em. I have had my pair for a good year now and I am doing 180 turns and then skating backwards. I am also looking into buying my next pair called "Grind It" which has a nylon grind bar on the bottom as well as the wheels. I also recommend, after you get used to them, to buy a pair of replacement wheels. Most shoes come with ABEC-3 FATS. The APEC-3 is the barring(sp) type. The higher the number, the less friction is created. Much like a skateboard. FAT is a type of wheel that most shoes use. Some shoes, however, have doubles or wide.

    I upgraded to the APED-7 FATS and I can wheel forever without slowing down too much. Personally, I dont know how I lived without them. On top of everything, they are stylish. I have never had anyone ever give a negative remark to the way my shoes look. Also, everyone I meet wants to see me wheel around and most say they want a pair(although I have only ever seen 3 of my friends actually go get a pair).

    What do you do That you need these. Just curious? I would of thought it would go against Health and Safety laws to use theses at work?
