Nike‘s timeless Air Jordan 4 is set to receive a playful “What The” makeover just in time for its 30th anniversary, first teased back in March. Keeping in line with past iterations, the basketball sneaker sports a host of mismatched panels and contrasting colors spread out across the upper, midsole and outsole, though the shoes are comparatively understated compared to past “What The” shoes.

A clean monochrome base highlights the asymmetric accents, with a white upper grounded by grey “Cement” and black hits on the midsole. Black accents pop up on the tongue and lace locks of the right shoe, while its counterpart sports touches of “Military Blue” and “Fire Red” on the locks, tongue, trim and Jumpman logo. Mismatched “NIKE AIR” branding on the heels drives the mismatched motif home, with the text and panels themselves each sporting entirely different colors and textures.

Rumors posit that the Air Jordan 4 “What The” will hit Nike’s site and stockists on November 23.

Elsewhere, we took a closer look at Travis Scott’s Air Jordan 6 “Cactus Jack.”
