Heelys Adult Hurricane Skate Shoe: The Definitive Review

If you’re looking for a good pair of Heelys for adults, there’s one model that will definitely fit you. The Heelys Adult Hurricane Skate Shoe is not as striking as many other Heelys models, which is what makes it greatly favorable for adults who don’t want to look immature with their shoes. Although when the wheels are on, you can feel like a child while you’re skating around your office, your flat, or while walking your dog. This review will cover everything you need to know about the product.

General Description

The Hurricane is simple enough for any adult male, but it might not be very suitable for females. It has a thick leather make with NuBuc or textured leather fabric, polyurethane midsoles and gum soles. The model is very durable and weather-resistant, and it is designed to be strong enough to withstand constant abuse and contact with the forces like friction, cemented ground, and rough roads. The synthetic NuBuc is very stylish and you definitely wouldn’t mind wearing it as a fashion statement rather than skate shoes. The soft and thick leather body hugs the foot perfectly to make it more comfortable to wear and skate in.

Features

The polyurethane midsoles are made to be long-lasting and extremely durable. They aren’t very far from the looks of regular rubber, but the quality is much higher and even more dependable. You can skate all you want without worry about breaking or damaging the shoes. The Hurricane also has the trademark Wave Comfort Heel Bracket from Heelys that makes it very comfortable to skate in even if all your weight is applied on the heel, and skating for hours wouldn’t make you feel any kind of pain or discomfort on the heel area. The wheels are also made of polyurethane material.

Colors

There are only two colors that the Hurricane comes in. The first and the more neutral of the two is the black one, which can probably be worn by more boyish females who really want to wear and experience the comfort and style of the Hurricane. The black Hurricane has a very simple color combination of classic black and white with a plain black body, white laces, white back accent, white logo on the sides, white logo on the tongue, and white logo on the midsoles. The soles are made of flesh gum and the wheels are colored black. The other color has a more masculine edge, with a blue accent. The front toecap and the tongue are black, as well as the midsoles and back panels. The entire body is white with a blue logo on the side. The inside of the tongue is blue and there are white logos on the tongue and on the midsoles. The soles are blue with black interior and a blue logo at the center. The wheels are also blue. You can surely find your perfect match from these varieties.

Drawbacks

If you’re looking for extreme skating fun, this pair of Heelys for adults isn’t exactly for you. Because of the unorthodox skate design, the Heelys require force on the heels to be able to run. This isn’t a very good way of skating because all the pressure will be transferred to the heels, and this can cause strain and wear on your heels. It’s also not that easy to control heel wheels especially for males with bigger feet whose feet tend to fall across while skating on the heel. The fabric is also very dust-accumulating, and they might wear out easily when it comes to the appearance, making them look old and worn even after just months of constant use.

Conclusion

If you’re a male adult with the heart of a child, you will surely enjoy having the Heelys Adult Hurricane Skate Shoe. It’s fun to wear, stylish and fashionable to use, and comfortable to walk and skate in even for several hours. This pair of Heelys for adults is what I highly recommend for all skate lovers who don’t want to invest in skate shoes alone. The Hurricane isn’t just for skating – it’s for both skating and style.
