A+ for Awesome!!!
I love these. $18 does seem a bit pricey for doll shoes but I guess we're paying for the brand-name. Since I get a kick out of doll-sized 'real' and detailed doll accessories, they are worth it to me.
Jasmine thinks they're great too.
The doll can stand either with both feet flat...
...or with one foot resting on the flat part of the back of the shoe, as if she were braking
These are beautifully detailed, are easy to put on and fit nicely. There is room for socks although Jasmine isn't wearing any (she's a sockless wonder like my DD). The only thing I would say... if I were being EXTREMELY picky... is that the wheels could be slightly more substantial.
I'm fairly sure that real Heelys have more solid wheels like the ones on rollerblades or skateboards (or roller skates?). But that tiny detail wouldn't stop me buying them over again.
Hm, I havn't got a picture, but I can give you my two cents on them. I bought these last summer when they first came out, and I am so glad I did! The doll can stand in them without leaning in funny directions, they can even stand the way a person would use the Heelys. The laces are easy to tie and the shoe itself is really accurate to the real ones sold for people. The wheel can not come out, it is permenantly in the shoe, but it does move quite nicely. Plus, there blue, a colour that AG is lacking. Hope I helped you some!
Since we already have some nice pictures in this thread, I won't bother adding my own, but here's what I think of the shoes:
I really, really like them. I love the white and blue combination, not to mention the adorable sparklies. I had Heely's a while back and the doll version is just like the real thing, except for the plastic wheels (dragonlovedolls, you are correct. The real Heely's wheels are like skateboard wheels) although I wouldn't really expect AG to make the shoes that accurate. The shoes can be easily removed and put on without even having to untie the laces.
I agree with Numberonekitty about the price, though. I'm iffy on the fact that ANY doll shoes could be worth almost $20. But nonetheless, I'm glad I that bought them. They're retired now, but if you can find them on the secondary market for a reduced price, I'd say go for it!
