Just had a crazy flashback to my childhood. My god were these fun, but they were exhausting! If I had kids now I'd get them some only so they'd tire out and sleep. Daddy needs quiet while he sips his whiskey.

Wow had these when I was a kid, back when they were Nickelodeon... They were fun and durable, but such a pain to put together (you have to attach and adjust all the rubber bands yourself, which is a pain until you get it set just right for your kid's weight). Also be warned, the rubber bands stink pretty bad for a while, so I wouldn't keep these stored in a bedroom.

These look like a really good way to break a body part!

Yep, I remember these ol' boys breaking my ankles back in the '90s. I wasn't as coordinated as my little brothers.

I remember Santa bringing me the Nickelodeon ones, and I thought they were the coolest thing ever. My teenage brothers even used them and no rubber bands broke, so they're sturdy. They were really loud on concrete though, I'm sure our neighbors hated us Christmas Day.

I can squeeze into a size 9.

This could be combined with (adult) drinking games for very unsafe fun.

My jumping stilts make these seem silly. =P But I suppose this would be fun for kids who don't have trampolines.

Woot, let me know when you get some shoes that really defy gravity, and you can have my savings account.

Rubber bands from these plus pool cues = crazy rubber band guns. Fun for all ages!

Never was a huge fan of the shoes but gave them multiple tries and they certainly are exhausting (feels like walking on rubber with cinder blocks strapped to your feet)

Considering so many posters and I still remember them, they're assured to carve out some memories in your child's brain.
Note, pogo sticks were more fun, but only spring loaded ones, not compressed air.

So what are the chances a size 15, 240lb man couldn't use these?

My kids have had these for a couple of years. They've provided hours of fun and no injuries. I got them on a black friday for the same price, so it's a good deal!

I remember using these to absorb the impact of jumping off of high things as a kid. Worked great until I jumped off the garage and the springs snapped my knees back up into my own face. That was a hard one to explain to mom...

Just about nil. The shoe holders are size 9. Your feet would prevent springing.

Whoa! Way to be warned! If these stink then I assume the rubber bands are real latex, and my daughter is highly allergic to latex! I was considering ordering these for all three of my grandchildren, but not if they will send Mommy to the hospital!
