Mery Munoz has been on top of the game for many years now, from winning some of blading’s biggest contests to consistently releasing ground-breaking video profiles and now she has FINALLY been rewarded with her very own pro model from USD Skates. To hype up the release of her much anticipated new skate, she has dropped an epic new video promo that is packed with stunts galore, from huge gaps, awkward looking kink rails and long hand ledges, Mery definitely brings the heat in her slick new profile.
Mery had this to say about the design process behind her new pro model skate:
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!
Mery’s new skate is available now in most major skateshops worldwide so be sure to pick them up and show some love and support to one of the best to ever strap on a pair of skates!
