EZ-SK8 Adjustable Strap on Heel Skates. So stupid, but so cheap!

Imagine you want to zoom around town on skates but not want the hassle of changing into shoes when you reach your destination. Convertible skates have been on the market for decades. We have discussed several models on WheeledThing, with the regretful conclusion that they basically always suck.

The team behind the EZ-SK8 Adjustable Strap on Heel Skate has decided to remove any uncertainty about their product — one look and you will know for sure, these things suck too.

Strap that to your sneakers. I dare you.

They’re the smallest skate converters I’ve ever seen (just two wheels), and the cheapest looking by far. They presumably give a ride similar to that from Heelys, with the user cantered back onto his or her heels.

For the sake of God, please wear a helmet when using these.

My mockery must be tempered with the observation that these skates cost only $12 including shipping. That’s so inexpensive, I might buy a pair to try out.

No, probably not.
