Detatchable skate wheels?

What's the inline skate brand that has a removable boot?

About a year ago I saw a woman walking around in Dean and Deluca's with what looked like inline skate wheels slung over her shoulder.

I checked out her shoes, and, by gosh, they were the skating equivalent of snowboard boots, e.g., the wheels and frames detatched so she could walk around without the hassle of taking the boots off.

I asked her about them and she told me the brand name, but I've since forgetten it. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

How are they though? In other words, is the convenience of not having to carry sandals around in my cargo shorts (I'm a dork, yeah) and swapping worth having the kind of skates that roll better sideways?
