Mery Muñoz, Spanish inline legend in the making is receiving her own Aeon 60 model from USD Skates. The sale of the brand new started on June 18th, and you can grab a pair HERE. Also, Mery Muñoz Aeon will be one of the first 2021 pro skates to feature in the company’s new higher royalties scheme.
“On all future releases, USD pro team riders will now receive a drastically increased royalty per pro skate sold, alongside their usual monthly incentives schemes. The dedication and support of our professional athletes are completely invaluable to us as a brand and we’re taking all the steps we can to support them to the best of our abilities,” shared the company.
In addition, they said: “To make such a substantial increase on the royalties, we have had to increase the final retail price of our pro model skates alongside also increasing the prices to compensate for the increased strains that Covid has added to us as a brand including the significant price increases we have faced on both production and shipment as a result of the pandemic.”
About the skates Muñoz shared: “For my pro-model skate, I’ve chosen the Aeon for its unique lightweight design. The unibody frame-boot concept gives me an exceptionally low center of gravity, making the skate feel super stable. The USD design team and I created a skate I can identify myself within through the intricate details we added.
Firstly, I’ve been using the aluminum buckle for over 2 years and never broke one so far so knew I had to have one. Secondly, for extra support I added an additional 45-degree buckle across the instep, I also added extra thick laces and a leather soft top to create the most supportive wrap-around feeling ever made in a 60mm Aeon. The leather top also gives the skate a nice sneaker-style look.
I choose light turquoise and white as they’re my fav color combination and I added my own personally designed little ninja logo to represent myself. My skate also features the new second generation, taller height-adjustable Aeon cuff, perfect to flex for topsides but also allowing for more comfortable and longer skating sessions.
For the liners, I added the 2nd Skin MYFIT liner because it’s super comfy and the tongue gives me a similar feeling to wearing a carbon. To keep me going as fast as possible my skates come with Wicked Abec 9 bearings set up in an exclusive USD wheel (60mm 88a) on which we added one of the most classic Spanish expressions on the wheels design… go and find it up!”
