She wanted it badly.
Never thought I will have to spend that money, but she got third in class for her mid-year exams.
A promise is a promise a good father shall keep.
(Actually wanted to get her an imitation, but could hardly find a store that sells them these days. The fad may be fading.)
Anyway the original Heely store still exist at Great World City. So off we went to get a pair.
I asked the store keeper for the difference between the original Heely roller shoe and the cheaper copycat roller shoe.
Here's the difference:
- The sole is made of the same tough rubber they use to make airplane tyres.
- The wheel is rubber and not plastic.
- There is a thick protective liner in the shoe to for heel comfort.
- The whole shoe itself is tougher and padded to reduce injury.
It's my daughter's feet. She deserves it. Original and safe.
Got a pair 3cm longer than her feet so that she will grow with it. Black with pink stripes. S$209.
It comes with an instructional VCD, an extra pair of lace and a free Heely cap.
I will get one myself too! ...When I achieve top 3 in something.
