One of the more iconic Air Jordan 12 releases is the “Flu Game” colorway, that Michael Jordan made famous when he wore them during Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals against the Utah Jazz. His Airness put up 38-points all while suffering a flu-like symptoms.
The Air Jordan 12 “Flu Game” was originally released back in 1997, then later retro’d in 2003, followed by another re-release in 2009. However, the 2009 pair didn’t meet ‘OG’ standards as they were built with a nubuck upper that included detailing on the heel as a nod to the year and points Michael Jordan scored that day.
As Jordan Brand is building on a big year for the Air Jordan 12, the “Flu Game” finally returns as a remastered version for 2016 and will release just like they did when they were OGs. The shoe features a tumbled leather Black upper with basketball textured Varsity Red mudguard and outsole.
