The On Wheelz are exceedingly simple skate platforms, developed by French company Flaneurz, that are designed to work for casual shoes. The system comprises a sneaker with step-in hardware built into the toe and heel sections of the sole, and a platform with toe and heel hook setups. This setup allows you to step in and lock into the platform, giving you the ability to roll and glide . You can easily detach yourself from the platform in seconds.

What's interesting about the On Wheelz is that they are compact enough to be thrown into a backpack or a desk drawer. Portable and lightweight, they excellently epitomize the ethos of modern urban mobility.

In terms of their performance, they are designed in such a way that they can be used for regular mobility or for recreation, and are just as good for skate tricks or skate dancing as they are for getting from Point A to Point B.
