Sports lifestyle company Heelys wins 'Top Gear of the Year'

20
May '08
Heelys Inc, the youth sports lifestyle company, is the recipient of two awards from the prestigious ShapeYou.com, a leading online provider of health, fitness and sports information. Heelys took top honors with ShapeYou.com's Health and Fitness Awards, including the “Top Gear of the Year” award, and the “Seal of Excellence” for its new Sidewalk Sports line.

ShapeYou.com, helmed by fitness expert Tony Hale, created the GearAwards to help consumers navigate the large selection of health and fitness products available in the marketplace. Heelys won the No. 1 spot in the skating category with the Top Gear of the Year award because of the fun nature and versatility of the wheeled product line with the removable wheel.

Heelys new Sidewalk Sports, the line of non-wheeled shoes with the grippy bottom, was awarded the Seal of Excellence because of its variety of fashionable styles and MaxTrax technology that make it the perfect skateboarding and sidewalk sports shoe.

“Winning two GearAwards is a distinguished honor because the products are judged and selected by a diverse team of fitness experts including trainers, coaches, healthcare practitioners and nutritionists,” said Don Carroll, SVP Marketing for Heelys, Inc. “Heelys is committed to getting kids moving. We're always looking to push innovation to the next level to offer kids footwear products that will enhance their sidewalk sports skills and increase their enthusiasm for fun physical activity.”
