Those are what we call fake Heelys.

Retractable.. What an idea. I bought retractable roller thingies like that from Sketchers once, it made me like, 20ft taller.

Those aren't grindplates; you can tell by the way the tone of the yellow doesn't change between the toe/heel tread and where the plate should be

those yellow parts look like they should be plates. i mean it has a major arch to it and everything. it may not be but why make it that way if its not?

Because the company behind these shoes would have wanted them to look as much like a pair of Heelys as possible. A lot of the new Heelys have grind plates, so it's only natural for them to copy the aesthetics without knowing the purpose of the arch

They look like the Grind Rails.

But it is rubber.

I'd call em Feelys - Fake Heelys, and that kinda sounds gross, so hopefully it would be a turn off.
