Heel wheels are like mini roller skates or hoverboards that you attach to your shoes, letting you coast along sidewalks or other paved terrain in a flash. They are electric, so you control the speed by positioning more or less pressure on the balls or heels of your feet. Some models also cast a shower of sparks when lots of pressure is applied to the heel, while lots of kid models have light-up wheels. Prices vary widely between basic heel wheels for kids (usually under $20) and speedier ones for adult use only, which cost about $100.
