Shoes with wheels

Postby Jmom » Mon Jun 06, 2011 1:52 pm

Dear all

My son is looking for shoes with wheels which are very popular a few years back. Only manage to find at Isetan and OG and it cost S$160+.

Any other recommendation?

Thanks.

hi,

how about those wheels that you can attach to any sneakers/sports schools? For younger kids, I think they dun mind.. The wheels light up when they move. They cost less than $40.

Oh, alternatively, you can get them during the Isetan Private Sale. They are at 30%(if i'm not wrong) discount for members. The next sale should be ard aug/sep.

Just a word of caution. You got to buy the actual shoe size (cannot buy one size bigger). I saw a boy in Great world city falling while wearing his oversized shoes with wheels.(He is going too fast)

We bought that early last yr.. can't recall where. But it was one of those shops(not the big names: WOS) that sells skateboards, in-line skates and sports accessories.
So far, my gal had not had any accident.. JTS, the wheels are at the sides and not under (like those on HEELYS)ya.
One good thing is that it allows you to use with almost any covered shoes and both my kids can share.

yup, those are the Heelys types.. the wheels are under. The alternative ones I mentioned are by the sides. One size fits all type. :)
