Heelys 2002 (Grail)
September, 2002 / wmv / 2:00 / 7.12mb

This is a promotional video that Heelys put out in 2002 for their new line of shoes featuring the Grail. The video includes some basic heeling, as well as some grinding and even break dancing.

I don't know most of the people in this video except that Joey Barbera from Relate is the kid grinding rails in the red shirt.

I didnt like this one too much, 1/2 way into the vid i deleted it...

you notice how they cut off 90% of the time right after the grind is done? I bet most of the people landed flat on their butts cuz they landed on the wheel and slid out. Personally, after going down a 45 degree angel, about 15 feet, i would not want two wheels on my heels when i land.

The breakdancing was kind of wierd, but I thought the video was cool.

Nov 4, 2006 AnthoFlex

haha, i agree with Trev on this one, stupid heelers...

Nov 4, 2006 30z

Disgusting.

Nov 7, 2006 mgm

Soap fanboys

Nov 7, 2006 Kile

would anyone hapen to nkow the name of this song featured in this video ?

Nov 7, 2006 SonicSoaper

It's not that we're fanboys. We just don't like Heelys. They're way too easy.

Nov 7, 2006 Curtinator

Heely's are so popular where I live but me and my bro always say Soap is better.

Nov 7, 2006 Kru

actually heeling is not easy.. its hard plus the posture is way unnatural for the legs. It gets kind of old fast too.. I tried to do it the first 2 days I had them but I gave it up because the rolling around thing only can do so much.. I do have to say the early heelys w/plates are alot nicer then these newer models that have been conjugulated with soaps.

Don't touch the classics man..

Nov 7, 2006 Curtinator

Yeah heely's are ok. But its not old in my city.

Nov 15, 2006 AnthoFlex

I finally saw the whole video of this....In my opinion i think that *starts throwing up*.........Get the picture? Only Soapers can grind with style, They cut out all of those landings (Like Trev said) because they landed on the wheel, then finally their asses.....out

Dec 2, 2006 JVilleSoaper

yea i hate it that "Heelyers" wanna start grindin that shit is made for soapers and only soapers. other than tht break dancin with heelys is the shizz i like the vid

Dec 27, 2006 adam13

breakdancing wtf they barley used the weel

Dec 28, 2006 SonicSoaper

The court finds this video stupid in favor that Heelys gets waaaaay too much attention for something so retarded. *bangs gavel* Case dismissed.

Jan 18, 2007 MrWaterBuffalo

they would almost always cut out right before he people landed...

Jan 19, 2007 AnthoFlex

THats why Heelers and Soaping should be seperate

Jan 19, 2007 SonicSoaper

Didn't the Captain of "Team Heelys" want to do a Soap/Heelys demo? I'm sorry but that's like when you were in second grade and you'd mix all of your friends leftover foodscraps with yours and you'd dare someone to eat the mess with a spoon. Actually......I'm not sorry because we don't need fricken six year olds running over because the Hellys people are here.

Jan 19, 2007 matrix8967

i saw a kid with heely's in the hallway (he was like 12 and it was after school and his mom was a teacher) and i was like "man, you need to get some soaps" and he looked at me with a blank stare and went "...I HAVE HEELYS!" and heeled off...i was like "yeah heelys...hook em while thier young...and to stupid to know anybetter..."

people only think heely's are cool because someone said they where.

I saw a kid at a health fair yesturday with those damn shoes. They had plates on them but I never got a chance to ask him about them. Most likely they would've been fresh.

Jan 20, 2007 AnthoFlex

Dunt even inform them about what the plates can do.....just hopefully they dunt slip on the stairs or sumthing

Jan 20, 2007 SonicSoaper

Then the only thing I need to worry about is my slowly building urge to move one of them closer to the stairs.

Jan 20, 2007 siuol7

the only reason i found out about soaps was because i was walking down stairs with my heely torch and slipped

now i just got my ordnance

Jan 20, 2007 siuol7

they are way better then the torch

Jan 20, 2007 SonicSoaper

Yeah but you can't grind as much stuff with the plates the Ords come with.

Feb 25, 2007 AnthoFlex

The absolute most stupidest video i have ever seen....Im sorry, but Heelys arent meant for grinding. Heelers got my respect on the Wheel tricks that they can do, but when it comes to grinds....Soapshoes is the only way to go. So leave the grinding to the big boys---The Soapers

Feb 25, 2007 SonicSoaper

This isn't the stupidest video I've seen. The "fakio" Heelys video is the stupidest video I've ever seen.

Feb 25, 2007 kobansora

I didn't like this much either... I'm personally a bboy, and I didn't like how they added the Heeling to breaking; It just doesn't look right. It looks kinda bad :c

I personally like Heeling. Only if they made the shoes in MY SIZE with the grind plates, I would totally rock them lol. Have you guys seen the Japanese Heely Grind promo vid? It's pretty cool lol.

But yea, I'ma stick to Soaps b/c they look a lot better.. Lots better.

Feb 26, 2007 matrix8967

go to the heely website and watch thier instuctional vids.....what a bunch of pussies (and i reserve that word for very few people) i mean really, "grab on to someone you trust, or something sturdy" and soap's all "play with yourself" get some balls and do it, if you can't do it, don't buy the feckin shoes!

---Alex

Feb 26, 2007 AnthoFlex

Yea, if you think that video on Heelys.com is bad, you should see the intructional DVD they got playing at the mall.

It all like:

"Golly!, HEELYS! i would like to try them out!"

"Well, before you go Heeling, you should try to hold onto sumthing or someone."

Im making a How-to video myself in a few minutes. its gonna be an add-on to the Myspace.com/Soapshoes page.

But imma keep it real.

"Try not to fall on your ass, it'll hurt like hell"

ok ok, i wont say it like that, but i'll be damned if im gonna say "Golly" or sound like the dudes from Full House, Brady Bunch, or the old Robin from Batman

Feb 26, 2007 Slidey

Oh sweet, that sounds well good man. Then everyone startin can know how to do it.
How do you do it Renny? All these GOOD ideas! lol

Feb 26, 2007 AnthoFlex

im just dedicated to my work.... I feel that i have a job to do here at Soap...i wont die until i finish what is done...

I feel like Link haha

Feb 26, 2007 matrix8967

you should pull a soap key out of the pedastel of time...that would be awesome.

---Alex

Feb 26, 2007 SonicSoaper

Yeah, but then he'd get older.

"Whackadacious wheels Batman, it's those crazy heelys Kids!"

Feb 26, 2007 matrix8967

but when he got older, all of his shileds would fit, and he'd get the cool sword and the girl. it would be awesome.

---Alex

Feb 26, 2007 SonicSoaper

But swords are illegal to carry in public, not to mention he could prolly get any girl he wants.

Feb 26, 2007 yanninicole

i like and love heelys but my mommy and my momys boy friend will not bye them for me

Feb 26, 2007 yanninicole

and my mom thing that i have addtoud and i do not and i am sad about that because all my friends have them and i do not have them4 of my friend have heelys and my dad can sead me the money i can go to dick and get them so me and all my friends can have so and we can go outside and heely

Mar 17, 2007 heelyhailey

"after going down a 45 degree angel, about 15 feet, i would not want two wheels on my heels when i land."
then maybe you should start understanding heelys arent by any means easy

Mar 17, 2007 SonicSoaper

Well the concept of Heeling is easy but the various tricks aren't and we respect that fact.

Mar 17, 2007 AnthoFlex

i think i'll stick with Soapshoes, but thanx for the offer Hailey

Mar 18, 2007 sam

Sure heeling looks can look kinda gay, but it can be fun at times I guess. Plus, you gotta give the people that land these tricks props.

Mar 18, 2007 heelyhailey

c'mon guys, lets quit with the heelys look gay crap. All you guys ever do is insult heeler, how many heelers have you seen put down soaps? I'm not saying none but it's getting old guys,

Mar 18, 2007 Surfaced

You haven't been here for more than a week.
Believe me, most of us do much more than insult Heelys. Infact, much of our work isn't evident on this website.

Mar 18, 2007 heelyhailey

i know, its just the little time i have been here ive seen more hate on heelys then ever before

Mar 18, 2007 AnthoFlex

Its because a lot of Heelers hate on Soapers.

You prbably havent seen that much though, seeing as this is mostly a Soapshoe-based community

Mar 18, 2007 AnthoFlex

You guys got my respect for Wheel tricks....Switch, Pipeline, Spins, those are all great.

But...

Noone can Grind the way us Soapers do, thats why we feel they should be seperate

Mar 18, 2007 heelyhailey

yeah, i agree. I guess I never have seen a heeler grind like soapers do. Maybe ive never payed attention to heelers hateing on soapers, but the heeler i know have total respect for you guys

Apr 27, 2007 RamenRadio

what the hell happened to my comment here?

Feb 11, 2008 Kain

H2,
am I the heeler you're talking about that has respect for soapers? n_n

Feb 11, 2008 Kain

btw, the guy landed from that 45 degree angle just fine and transfered to his wheels

Feb 11, 2008 AnthoFlex

Actually he landed on his feet first, then started rolling. So that doesnt exactly count as "clean"

Feb 11, 2008 Kain

In heeling, landing like that is clean as long as you don't stumble or flap your arms around like a headless chicken :P

btw, soapers just land on their feet and start running....it's not any less clean than heelys grinds.

Feb 11, 2008 AnthoFlex

What do you expect us to do? Glide away? Roll away like how you guys try to do?

Like 90% of us blade and skate, and we know once you come off a rail in soaping, all you can do is walk it off, roll (somersault) out of it, or continue running to the next grind in your line.

You heelers have wheels, you HAVE to roll outta it for it to look clean

Feb 11, 2008 Kain

well no, we could make ourselves look like soapers and just run out of it, but we can glide out of it if we want to.

Feb 11, 2008 AnthoFlex

well yes, you guys put yourselves in the situtation by having the wheels when you grind

Feb 11, 2008 rhinoskater30

If Heelys would have stayed urban like in the very beginning the vid and just like "heh, let's roll around" I'd be okay with Heelys being around. Soapers, at least I think, have this mind set. But since Heelys isn't anymore
no me gusta. (i dont like)

Feb 11, 2008 Kain

Rhino,
that's how most ppl use their heelys. I love just riding around town to go places, or hitting up a skate park. The problem is ppl stereotype heeling as a little kid sport, or not a sport at all, b/c little kids keep riding them around in Wal-Mart, falling on their asses, and making a big scene.

Feb 11, 2008 rhinoskater30

it is a little kids sport, you can't wear rolling shoes in a halfpipe and expect to get respect

and just an hour ago a saw a little girl with heelys at a store, she about ran into me and now i'm a little mad

Feb 11, 2008 Kain

Rhino,
yeah......I guess that's why a lot of ppl at my skatepark think I'm awesome.......

Everybody sees me in the pipe and says to their friends, "have you seen the shit this guy can do on those?!"

Yeah, the little girl thing is exactly what heelers DON'T want......b/c it re-defines the bad image we have =_=

Mar 16, 2008 wyattpeterson

heely's reunied alot of shit

Mar 16, 2008 wyattpeterson

heely's are gay

Mar 16, 2008 anaholaboys

Dec 13, 2008 dlynch

go joey!!

Heelys: Tame as hell. Soap: Ya can jack-off while grinding does it look like we give any shits?
