Created by Roger Adams in 1999, Heelys are shoes with either one or two easily removable wheels located in the heel. Because two-wheel Heelys offer more stability, they are well-suited for beginning skaters. Heelys wearers can transition from walking to skating quickly by shifting their body weight to their heels. When the wheel or wheels are removed, Heelys function like regular shoes.
