...do they make them in adult sizes, because I'm not alone in thinking they look well fun, am I?
They do look kinda like sketchers though.
my mum's bringing me back a pair. what's your shoe size, i'll see what she can do (Y)
Come on. You have kids!
I have very wide, high-instepped feet in any case.
Thank you anyway. :D
What do you call a man with very wide, high-instepped feet?
A munter is a very ugly person. How can wearing such shoes make you into a munter.
Twat for sure. Arsehead? Yup. Munter? Never...
My former boss came in to the office wearing them, 2 YEARS AGO! I think she got them in America.
just floating around in them
by buying a skate board
like a proper person
when drunk, clearly not a good idea
i want a pair
ever ever ever.
is this to go with your puffa and naff co jackets?
I actually ctrl+f'ed 'puffa'. I was going to make the gag but guntrip beat me to it, well done!
I like the idea. If you can't see the wheels you can dress all in black and make it look like you're gliding eerily down the pavement like an agent of death.
i'm actually still in disbelief that anyone would want these.
this, more than anything, proves why our society is fucked.
I pass a toy shop that has them on display everyday on the way to work, I have to stop myself from pressing my face up to the window and sighing
it more effort than walking normally, or is that not the point?
I've only seen da kidz use them when they're on a slope to coast down.
You were only about 2 years old or something.
Oh yes i do.
you're about to get mugged by some fake Adidas tracksuit wearing yob, you flick out your wheels and glide away laughing
end up skidding into a car and the yob runs after you and give you a good kicking for wearing the shoes, then steals them
That sounds like thats what they were made for.
When you were talking about them i thought you meant the ones they used to have where the wheels fold out from underneath the shoe and there like shoes and roller skates in one, or did i dream these?
but how would you use these ones theo?? I dont get how they would be fun!? do you skid around on your heals?
They are making now sense to me and are making my petty brain hurt!
because some people SUCK.
I still dont understand how they work though!? because how can you skate o them? and if your trying to walk over cobbles there is more of a chance or fucking over.
They just seem to me more like torture shoes.
Think about when you stand up. You can rock back slightly and put all your weight onto your heels, gently lifting your toes up.
Now imagine if there was a little wide wheel under your heel, like a roller. Two of them in fact, just enough to cover the whole heel area: you'd then start rolling along, assuming you were on a slope or you used the pendulum-nature of your body moving to provide momentum.
As long as you leant forward but kepty our toes raised you wouldn't easily fall over. If you just wanted to walk you'd have to put most of your weight on your toes.
