When I first saw this novelty on the street – I was very surprised. It would seem that there is a person in ordinary shoes, and then suddenly he went smoothly. The answer is simple – long known abroad, and now with us, sneakers with wheels in the heel area.
Now they are very popular with us. Not so, of course, like rollers and bicycles, but you can often meet children and even adults in such shoes. The daughter decided to keep up with the trend and asked to buy it.
We have specialized shops in the city, but the prices in them, as often happens, are exorbitant. Although, if people buy, then why not. In local online stores you can save 10 percent of the cost.
I have already written about my purchases in American stores more than once, so I decided to purchase Hilis there too. Given the current dollar exchange rate, the savings of the luminaries are small, but to my happiness, I managed to take advantage of a huge discount in honor of the independence day of the United States. As a result, I bought sneakers twice cheaper – the total price, along with the delivery of about 1500 rubles (500 UAH).
There are two nuances. Firstly, the weight of the shoes with packaging is rather big – 1100g, so I chose the sea delivery method, saving a little. Secondly, the dimensional grid. Hilis malomeryat 1-2 size. Honestly, I bought them with the expectation of a gift from Santa Claus and use as much the next spring. But I had to donate earlier and rolls a daughter on them now.
I bought the size of US1, which corresponds to our (European) 33rd. My daughter is now full 30, they fit her, the minimum stock. By the way, the minimum size in the grid is US12 (EUR30, but really somewhere around 28-29).
The principle here is somewhat different than on the rollers – you need to push off with the toe of one foot and ride on the heel of the other. More advanced users can ride on two legs at the same time.
For a start, we reviewed a lot of training videos, which are plentiful on the Internet. The theory was clear, proceeded to practical exercises. The first two hours, my daughter stubbornly fell on the ass, so all this time I insured her. And only by the end of the third hour, she gradually began to turn out.
Now its results can be called quite tolerable, but some fear, of course, is present. By the way, it is not necessary to carry removable shoes with you at all – complete with sneakers there is a special key and cap. With their help, the wheel is pulled out, the hole closes, and the sneakers turn into ordinary shoes.
But for a five-year-old child, such shoes are still heavy, so the daughter just rolls around in them. As the main shoes I do not consider them.
Gym shoes with wheels – a great idea for active and mobile children. They are not as massive as commercials. By the way, there are adult sizes to ride the whole family.
Skating in this way perfectly develops the coordination of movements, contributes to physical development. In my plans are daily morning walks in Hilis to get to the kindergarten faster. Daughters entertainment, and I jogging.
Have you heard of such shoes? Have a desire to try?
