Heelys arguably started the wheeled shoe craze back in the early 2000s. The innovative Texas-based brand created rolling styles for kids, so little ones could go from walking to skating in moments for a fun way to get around. The innovative style debuted in a 30-second television that aired on MTV and dropped just before the holiday season in 2001.
Patented Heelys are fixed with a removable wheel located in the heel that transforms the shoes into low-key “stealth” skates, giving wearers the freedom to seamlessly go from walking or running to skating just by shifting their weight to their heel. Roller skating fanatic and Heelys founder Roger Adams actually designed a prototype by simply taking a skateboard wheel and placing it in the heel of a sneaker.
These classic styles are still available, and what’s more, a handful of other brands have also created wheeled styles for tots who are always on the move. Some come with one wheel in the heel while others feature two with another placed at the front.
With this in mind, we’ve rounded up nine of the best girls’ shoes with wheels to shop. All of these styles made to be comfortable and easily customizable to double as flat shoes for versatile wear. Plus, they include stylish designs so she can stand out on the playground.
