Hi,

I want to buy some Roller Sneakers/Shoes for my DNs for Christmas but I don't know where to buy them from. I've seen kids in shopping centre with them on so I know they must be available here, but where? Has anyone seen them in shops in Melbourne?

Thanks in advance.

You can get them in Rebel Sport too.

I was wondering too. My kids have been asking for them and I wanted to investigate for Christmas. The Target ones were super heavy and are a one size fits all. You find them in the outdoor toys area.  I saw them last week in the Rebel Sports catalogue but the $99 price tag (on special) put a quick end to the investigation. That is almost my entire Christmas budget for them blown on a pair of shoes.

Thanks ladies. Are the Target ones licensed ones like, Ben 10, Barbie, etc? I'm looking for unlicensed sneakers with a reasonable price (ie, between $30-50), thanks.

I'd try ebay then? I haven't seen them in the shops for ages.

Not sure of the age/sizes that you need, but we have bought them from ebay = try 'Cruz shoes'.  

They are quite chunky - not too heavy though.

I got DS some Sketchers from USA. Just look how the rollers work. With DS you have to put the rollers in when you want to roll and take them out when you don't want to roll. You need a special tool to do it and it takes ages. It isn't a quick flick and you're off.

DS has no ability to use the rollers and I hesitated to buy them but I quite liked the shoe without the roller so bought them anyway.

The Target ones were Hot Wheels and Barbie I think and around $49 if I remember?

DS1 has 'Heeleys' brand roller shoes, they are sold in Rebel Sport and cost around $120.  They are definately worth every cent of that though as they were actually bought for my nephew about 4 or 5 years ago.  They were used almost daily for a couple of years (my sister bought them a little big LOL), then they were stored for a couple of years and now my son has been using them...they are still a little big on him too but he insists they are comfy so I don't really mind LOL

We have Heely's too...fantastic quality, but very expensive, ours cost $160

Thanks all, looks like it's eBay for me as I'm not willing to spend $100+ for Heelys.

We got ours off ebay, I think they were about $20, plus postage, not huge.  They've gone a couple years, but I think we are getting to the end of their life now, the backs are wearing down (from braking).  DD has loved them, heaps of fun.  You get lots of funny looks, with people trying to work out what on earth she is doing with her feet, lol.

I bought mine online - either endless.com, amazon.com or shoebuy.com  Around the $50 mark for Heelys which really do last better then the cheaper brands.  They seem to be more sturdy as well and the wheels roll a lot better and don't stick as much.
