US-based wheeled footwear maker Heelys has announced it will offer four new styles of its Hx2 collection to arrive in stores by mid-November, including adult sizes.

Heelys Hx2 has two removable wheels in each shoe, meaning they can be converted into a regular pair of Heelys by removing one of the wheels. According to Heelys, the new launches reflect customers’ enthusiasm for the two-wheeler model.

“After many requests directly from customers and through our retailers, we are glad to expand the Hx2 into adult sizes so that Mom can join the fun,” said Tom Hansen, chief executive officer of Heelys. “Heelys and the new Hx2 are proving to be a great activity for parents to enjoy with their kids.”

Heelys Hx2 has been available since July in sizes 12C–3 on the Heelys Shop and at a number of different retailers, retailing at US$54.99.
