I initially began this edit for Unlabelled to show all the best clips I shot during my “carrer” of videomaker in the aggressive inline skating but I just felt like I could do something cool to thank all the people who inspired me. It doesn’t mean that everyone is in the video, far from it.
So please have the pleasure to watch a part of those who are part of my lifetime on this Earth. I truly believe that the best is yet to come, I could have called that edit the 2.09€ video but “Snippets of a Blading Life” seems more cinematic #bladeordie. - Gaets Krop.

A lot of blading (aggressive inline skating, patins street, roller street, patinaje aggressivo) basically.
The Aeon 72 XXI skate is the modern classic of aggressive street skating. USD took it right back to the drawing board with the design of this skate, shattering all expectations and dismissing the UFS frame system, completely reworking our understanding of an aggressive skate and bringing the design back to basics.
The unibody concept defines this unique design, creating the lowest, lightest skate possible with unparalleled energy transfer in every stride. One step back, two steps forward. With a single-piece construction, the weight is drastically reduced whilst the strength of the boot is immensely increased, you’ll never snap another frame again. The unibody concept allows for the widest H-block split possible, making this the best flat set up skate ever created, keeping you safe from wheel bite on all H-block tricks. The Aeon 72 allows you to ride a full flat set up of 72mm wheels and comes with the new USD Team wheels, which are fast and long-lasting.
The skate is completed with the dual-fit MYFIT liners. The stretchy neoprene toes allow for 2 sizes to be catered to with a single liner, giving perfect comfort and support in every session. The new WCD ABEC 9 bearings make this skate now even faster and the new soft top for the lacing even better looking.
Filmed in Barcelona, Spain, 15-22 May 2021. Starring:

USD Aeon 60 Mery Muñoz Pro Skate Promo - USD Skates.
We are proud to present the USD Aeon 60 Mery Muñoz Pro 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 Muñoz.
USD are proud to annouce that the Mery Muñoz Aeon will be one of the first 2021 pro skates to feature in our 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 is 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.
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.
The Mery Muñoz Aeon also features the following upgrades:
- Premium leather Soft top
- 45 degree ratchet buckle
- Reinforced Aluminium buckle
- Hand crafted dual color print
- Additional heel reflective print
- 60mm 88a Mery Muñoz USD UHR (Ultra High Rebound) Wheels
- Wicked Abec 9 Bearings
