Light up wheels for your feet!
Member Name: MikeBorry
Advantages: Adjustable in size, light up wheels.
Disadvantages: Hard to use.
Okay, so I notice that there are no other reviews for these.... Is this because I am the only daft person to buy them? I suspect so lol!
So these Street Gliders consist of a little plastic bridge inbetween two light up wheels, the wheels are very similar to the wheels of that found on those little metal fold up scooters.
You simply slip your foot (in your shoes) onto the little bridge and do up the velcro strap.
I suppose they are meant to be like skates but to be quite honest my son is useless on them! He put's them on the walks around wheeling on one foot and tip toeing on the other!?
He had previously asked for a pair of Heeleys and to be honest I hate them and he isn't really the most careful of kids so I just said have a new pair of skates instead!
My reasoning for this being, skates won't be worn all the time, the wheels don't just pop out of the shoes and therefore he won't be wheeling around Asda!
He said nah he didn't want new skates, his were like new!
So I was looking in Asda and came across these for just £7 for a pair, they are adjustable and therefore better than the Heeleys as these will grow with your feet!
When he got them on Christmas morning he was really pleased as he had seen a few of his friends with them on and he thought they looked quite cool!
So he ripped open the packaging and threw on his trainers (still in his pyjamas mind) and stuck his feet into the gliders! Well, I nearly wee'd myself laughing at him, I think they are meant to fit onto the heel of the foot but he was adamant they go in the middle! He looked not far from Mr Bean when he does his dance! Wobbling back and forth, trying to skate ..... It didn't work lol!
They did light up well, in bright neon type colours and they were made to be pretty sturdy and seemed to hold out well.
Over the months he had got better on them and does slip them on every now and again but he has said, that he prefers his in-line skates as they feel a lot more stable....... They look it too!
I think for the £7 I paid for them they have been worth it as he has had a lot of use out of them, even though he hasn't quite managed to get to grips with exactly how they are supposed to work!
I would say to buy a pair of skates instead, unless you find them pretty cheap.
Summary: Funky light up skates, but not the easiest to use.
