Review for the Adults....,
This review is from: Heelys Straight Up Roller Skate Shoe (Little Kid/Big Kid) (Apparel)
So I figured, why should kids have all the fun...now that they make these in adult sizes, and being the skater back in the 80's that I was, lets go ahead and keep up with the trend. Ok folks, seriously, I used to skate board, roller skate, ice skate and inline skate and could do them all day long wreck free...take my advise, just forget everything you think you know, this is new and its completely different. As soon as I put these things on I thought "Oh my god, am I old and did I loose my balance?" No, it's just us old skool skaters aren't used to one wheel on either foot. If I had to equate this to something, I'd say it's like learning how to walk on a freshly waxed floor. VERY slippery. But...a little time and patience go such a long way, you'll get there. As for the size comparison, it seems very true...I've been a size "comfortable" ten since I was 15 so I ordered a size 10....they do seem rather "snug" for a ten so perhaps the next size up would be ideal for a lot of people. Use your best judgment.
