Heelys Mack is on the top of the Game

I started out looking at the Mack in an argument that I was having with a few friends. The issues being discussed were on the quality of shoes that Heelys had put out. On Heelys web site my friends proceeded to say that the shoe looked cheap and would fall apart. The other argument was on the back wheels and their durability. Being on the soap team, I asked if there was any way that I show off the shoes to my friends so that they could get a close up look at the product. Soap came through with flying colors and I received the Heelys in the mail the other day.
These shoes have yet to come off my feet. The design as well as the concept is unreal. The shoes offer Light Gray / Charcoal / Red, or a Black / Charcoal / Royal Blue color scheme. The color looks so nice when up close. Also the color looks tight when walking around with a pair of tight or loose leg jeans on. The Mack offers a Cemented-On, Big Mack Nylon Grind Plate which is similar to the soap grind plates. The grind plate feels slightly bigger than the soap shoes plate but has great lock on capabilities when hitting the bigger rails and curbs. The Grail also offers an Independent Suspension system which is super great when heeling around the rougher terrain. The padding on the "ride" of the shoe is unreal. I can't get over the comfort of these shoes because it no longer feels like your wearing high heels, like the older style Heelys felt. The Mack comes with a Nu Buc-Finish Leather outside and a Super-Light Phylon Midsole making the shoes comfort even better. The wheels on the back of the shoe measure 52mm, which is not to big for the shoe to look "weird". The Clear PU Big Wheels can also be rotated a little different from the last model of Heelys making a more custom feel to the shoe.
The Mack seriously rocks. Seriously go out and pick up a pair of these shoes today. Heelys has done an awesome job of redesigning the shoes and making the error of their old ways so much better. The Mack is a new breed of durability in footwear as well as a shoe that actually lasts through the hard times that shoes are often put through. I shut up my friends the second that I walked into the room and they were even more impressed when they threw down the money for a pair of their own at our local Heelys dealer.
derek adds: Excellent.
