Heelys Inc has sold its one- millionth pair of skate shoes into Japan, through their exclusive distributor, A.G. Corporation. These sales were driven by the efforts of the A.G. Corporation and the international brand strength and continuing demand for Heelys skate shoes. Launched in 2001, Japan is one of more than 70 countries around the world where Heelys skate shoes are currently distributed.

"Heelys is so proud to be partners with Mr. Araki and the A.G. Corporation,” said Heelys CEO Mike Hessong. “They were our first international distributor and have been a valued business partner of Heelys since our inception in 2001. We look forward to many successful years with them to come."

"I would like to commend Mr. Araki and his team on this very notable milestone with Heelys products in Japan,” said John O'Neill, international vice president, Heelys. “This demonstrates A.G. Corporation's high quality of sales, marketing, and customer service efforts for the past eight years.”

"This achievement was made possible thanks to the cooperation and business partnership of Heelys, their CEO Mike Hessong, and one of our most important customers, Toys “R” Us Japan,” said Mr. Toshihiko Araki, president of A.G. Corporation. “We expect to see continued success with Heelys with our one-millionth pair and beyond.”

Heelys skate shoes are poised to build on such an international accomplishment by launching an entirely new product line for Summer 2009. Driven by exciting new marketing, media, product placement and grass roots initiatives, this new line of Heelys skate shoes will further enhance the global image of the brand and continue to position Heelys skate shoes as a fashion and performance leader in sport and recreational products. The company's footwear is available in more than 10,000 retail locations throughout the U.S. and in Canada, Latin America, South America, Europe, Asia Pacific and the Middle East.
