  5. Actually, I think the ones that have been around are those Heelys kids' shoes. They are essentially shoes with wheels on the heels.

    But these 'Skateshoes' are completely new - and are like the real athlete's version of Heelys! Note that the wheels are actually on the side of the shoes, not underneath. Plus, they're full-sized wheels, and from what I understand, they are proper skates wheels (can withstand extreme riding).

    I used to inline skate a lot, and these are making me drool!

  6. I saw a dude with a pair of skate shoes, excepts the wheels pointed sideways rather than forwards like those. So it was like he was surfing/skating standing sideways, rather than forwards. Coolest thing I've seen!
