The On Wheelz Platform Converts Sneakers Into Skates

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.
