** Thank you for all the response!  Finalized kits based on IC form feedback
Like the set and interested in getting it? Help get it to GB and a lower price by filling in the IC (vendors use this as a signal for potential
GB demand and if they should price it lower in anticipation of hitting a higher MOQ / lower unit cost)

GMK 95NEON: Representing streetwear and pop culture with keyboards

Geekhack Community, I'm Edwyn and GMK 95NEON is my first keyset. This set is inspired by one of my favorite sneakers in its
original (and best?) colorway: Nike Air Max 95 in Neon. After the success of the shoe, the Neon colorway, also known as volt,
is now one of the most popular colorways in sports and I want to bring it to the keyboard community.

Just like when it was created in the 90s, the Neon colorway evokes a sense of the future and speed, something that I feel matches
with the keyboard niche. It was a challenge to faithfully replicate the shoe into a keycap set as the NEON colorway itself has gone
through many tweaks of its own during its 25+ year lifetime and capturing the grey gradient was also not easy.

I hope my my rendition does the shoe justice and delights fellow sneakerheads and 90s kids.

* GMK 95NEON Inspiration
The Nike Air Max 95 in the original and now iconic NEON color way



Made immortal in hiphop by Jay-Z


This colorway was so popular that after its original 1995 appearance, it reappeared in 1997, 1998, 1999, 2003, 2006, 2008, 2010,
2012, 2015 and 2020


* GMK 95NEON Colors

Choosing colors was the biggest challenge for this set as I had specific colors in mind but needed to balance that with potential
color matching issues with GMK. The volt color was the biggest challenge as this color has been tweaked by Nike as the model evolved.

Although to be most faithful it would have been to choose a pure neon yellow but I decided to go with a greenish yellow instead
as that was the feel of the promotional images of the shoe and would also be further away from other sets that have use neon yellow before
such as GMK Toxic and GMK Grand Prix. To achieve this color I had to use the pantone color set as RAL just did not have any color near
in it, in neither RAL classic nor RAL design.

With the volt color selected I tried to use as much of the GMK colors as possible to
simplify future color matching.  The dark and the light grey are from GMK but I had to use RAL classic to find a suitable medium
grey to complete the gradient.

Volt: Pantone 375C
Light Grey: GMK 2B
Dark Grey: GMK N9
Medium Grey: RAL 7011




* GMK 95NEON Kits

The base kit should cover most people's needs and I thought it would be most beneficial for everyone to do it this way

It looks really good! I like the colors.
However I am not a fan of the gradient as in my opinion there are a few inconsistencies.

1. Why is the up arrow in a different color? If you have it on a 65% or something it looks kinda odd, that it does not match the shift right next to it. I think arrows should be all the same color.

2. I would make num-enter N9 too, because it is in the same row as shift and bottom row and all of those mods are N9.

I would also like to see a 1.5U super and one more 1u alt.

Thanks for the feedback.
1. the arrow should be the same color. r4 should be the same color for the gradient
2. will take this.

Very appreciate the feedback

I know everyone wants to run a GMK set, myself included. However I think this set would fit a KAT set more.
With KAT you could make the whole keycap set gradient from top to bottom and this would fit the theme so well! In my opinion a gradient in the a mods with a GMK set is kinda odd and does not work as well as you think.

There is nothing wrong doing KAT, I think this would be perfect.

Thanks for the encouragement! Working on vendors right now. Most want to see what kind of traction you get on IC before committing, so remember to fill it in!

If you like sneakers, I have another set in the works!

If people already don't like how the aftermarket works now, the prevalence of botting, and seemingly impossible-to-win FCFS style sales, this would only exacerbate issues exponentially.

Not a sneaker head, love the colors of the set and would buy but think it would be best if the mods didn't have the color shift. I get it's supposed to be the sole but the reduction down to 3 colors would probably help with pricing and a 3rd grey can only be so spicy.

The Neon 95 is known for the gradient grey side panels. So that's essentially taking away the identity of this set.

Hey I'm a fan of your blog!

Just want to let you know the comment was a joke about stockX. I also collect art and stockX is a nightmare with how they handle the pieces (fakes or wrong items).

My own take on bots/scalpers and the mk community are:

1. if they participate in unlimited GBs like keycaps its for the benefit of everybody. More keycaps brought equals a) higher MOQs met which lead to vendors being more aggressive in forecasts and pricing lower b) more supply out in the aftermarket pushing the prices down

2. for limited fcfs items like keyboards, I agree this is a risk.  However in the current situation I don't feel its particularly attractive to scalpers outside of the niche as the use/return on capital for speculating on keyboard suck.  For a scalper its about return on investment and keyboards have a way too long trade cycle (1+ year of wait after deploying capital) until they can make a profit.  There are alot more niches that give them a better return.  Plus you need to be pretty into this niche to be convinced on taking the risk that people still will pay for keyboards at a huge mark up after a year.

Will this run on StockX?

That totally could be possible. Listed as a collectible. That would be a huge milestone for keycaps to go mainstream.

Make it happen!

Glad you like the green. Don't worry not moving on the green color. I had to get a Pantone color set just to make sure I could get this green I wanted.  Complicates the process but the green is the soul and worth it

When I saw that the grays are doing a gradient thing, I went from really interested to not so much. I see, conceptually, why you'd want to do this. However, personally I think you could accomplish the same visual pop with only 2B and N9. Good luck with IC!

Definitely won't be able to do 3 color combos in one set  :-X don't think any vendor will take me that way. Infrared is in my todo-list. Persian I had to look up - is this a really popular colorway?  never seen/heard of it before.

not going to lie this is fire

Too kind!

Now do Infrared and Persian then release it as a whole set.

Definitely won't be able to do 3 color combos in one set  :-X don't think any vendor will take me that way. Infrared is in my todo-list. Persian I had to look up - is this a really popular colorway?  never seen/heard of it before.

not going to lie this is fire

Too kind!

I suppose it is popular among older heads or people who collect Air Maxes in general, the Air Max BW isn't quite as popular as 1's or 90's. For me it's more to do with it being one of the "OG Colourways" like Infrared for 90's and Neon for 95's:

If the inspiration is for OG colorways, I suggest the Scream Green Huarache. It has a more popping color combo.

Was thinking more strictly in terms of Air Max. If we're just going off popular Nike colorways, you would go with Bred or Chicago.

Probably derailing a bit too much - Neon looks real nice OP.

Sure I see that. But black/red, black/red/white from Bred and Chicago are just too common and bland on a keyset IMO.

Neon was the perfect choice as a sneaker inspiration.

I can feel myself getting sucked into this one.  I think the alphas need to be a little darker to show off the green.
