Generally, “What The …” are the words that come to mind when you come across something out of the ordinary that you are not used to seeing in your everyday life. For years now, Nike has been whipping up “What The” colorways of some of their most popular models based on this very concept, which is the reason the Swoosh’s “What The” sneakers have always stood out. However, it is even more out of the ordinary and unusual for Jordan Brand to drop a “What The” rendition of an Air Jordan model. However, this year will supposedly mark the Jordan release 2016 of a “What The” Air Jordan 1.
Nike’s “What The” sneakers are probably recognized within the sneaker community for being the least bit consistent in terms of colors and designs. In fact, often even the left and right shoe of a pair do not match and look mismatched. Another signature trait of “What The” sneakers is that they have always been an amalgamation of elements that have made an appearance on a certain model in the past and are simply meshed together. Apparently Jordan Brand is also following the same formula for the Air Jordan 1 “What The.”
For now, the news of this sneaker’s arrival is nothing more than a rumor, so there is currently no photo available to provide readers with an idea of what it looks like. Even the photo featured above is of a Photoshopped pair, but supposedly the Air Jordan 1 “What The” will bear a similar appearance. It is being rumored that it will be a combination of elements of the “Bred,” “Chicago,” and “Royal” colorways of the Air Jordan 1.
While Jordanheads can keep their fingers crossed, it would be better to wait for the Jumpman to confirm whether or not they actually have such a sneaker in the works. So far, it is uncertain whether the Jordan release 2016 of the Air Jordan 1 “What The” will actually take place, or whether such a sneaker even exists.
