One of the best collabs yet!
I’ve been a proud owner of Heelys for the last 16 years. The blue accents on the toe and the back of the heel and the red as well are glossy, so the light blue Hello Kitty designs on the panels stand out and don’t look flat. The tongue has a 3-D effect with the Hello Kitty name, instead of it all being a printed design. These shoes are crisp looking.
Hello Kitty herself (and her name on the tongue) on the outside is a matte white and her bow is a matte red, so she might get a little dirtier than the rest of the shoe.
Now, for the bad news. One of my shoes came with some separation of the inner lining, the foam, and the body of the shoe just outside of an eyelet, where some stitching unfortunately busted. There were also some small little bits of sticky stuff (like sticker adhesive) on parts of the shoe, but I wasn’t bothered by that. It happens. I’m a collector but I also wear my collection and will get these dirty, and it was easy enough to remove.
I am a little worried about wearing them due to the eyelet losing some stitching, and since the design is sold out for my size I don’t want to send them back. I very much still want the shoes. They’re way too cool to give up just for some busted thread.
