  2. Hah, they're like the original version of the rolly sneakers all the kids were wearing for a while. I remember being in a Walmart and watching a father pulling his son as the kid rolled along on his shoes behind him XD These are so awesome for being leather clog sandals though.

    i would like to start skating again, too, and can't seem to stop myself from bringing home vintage roller skates from my thrifting travels. my favorites are the traditional boot style in sparkly gold glitter finish--but i can't get the nerve to try them out! there's a good resolution for 2012: try rollerskating again!

  10. I saw such sandal skates in Italy (made by Omnia in false wood-like plastic) 35 years ago. Little girls craved for them since they also liked to wear and walk on such thick soles. The skates I see here are real wood! Now in 2012-2013 the "flatform" sandal sees a return, so this shape gains a renewed appeal.
    About skating on those things... it's a mess. Too high, thin wheelbase, no ankle support, very slow. You cannot push very much because your foot easily twists sideways, with risk of sprain.
