Flu Game Air Jordan 12 2016 On Feet

The Air Jordan 12 “Flu Game” is another Air Jordan 12 colorway that will be releasing in 2016, along side the Air Jordan 12 “French Blue” and other Retro/OG Air Jordan 12 colorways.

Advertisment

One of the more iconic Air Jordan 12 releases is the “Flu Game” edition, which was worn by Michael Jordan 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.

Now they’re finally set to return as a remastered version for 2016 and will release just like they did when they were OGs. The shoe features a full Black-based upper with Varsity Red accents throughout.

      Totally agree. Pass

  • Tony Starks

    This shoe looks like a knock off. Jordan Brand are cheap @$$. That leather looks so flat. You can tell they really took short cuts on making this shoe. For almost $200, they better be coming out with the quality and craftsmanship like they first released them in 1997. The red looks off (no contrast), the tongue looks $h!tty- supposed to be fold at the very top. Even the laces looks super cheap- they are supposed to be thicker. Even the slits on the soles doesn’t has that gummy bear feel to them. The shape looks far off. How insulting, they even joke us with a Jordan Brand version of a Nike box.

    We need to make a statement! Let them sit on the shelves. If we keep supporting this, they will keep doing this. For $200, I expect nothing less.

    • Will

      The shoes looks just fine bro. Nice tumbled leather. When you wear the shoe a couple of times the leather looks way better. I had these when they 1st came out in ’97 along with Playoffs and everything looks good. Right now I have the Playoffs that came out on 2012 and the Taxis 2013 and these look HOT!

      • Tony Starks

        It supposed to be puffy ribbed smooth leather and this version looks anorexic I bet the leather is synthetic. 2003 was tumble, and that version was far off. If you think those were great, I’m sorry to say you have low taste. Something is always off. I’d say the truly last great release that came close to the originals was the 2000 Concords.

        Compare the 2009 White/red XII to the OG version. 2 different shoes.
        The red on those were far off, and this will be no different.

        http://ink361.com/app/users/ig-1047439409/charlottes23jays/photos/ig-1041530793190812120_1047439409

        I demand nothing but the best. I don’t settle for less. And for $200, it better be exactly like the one’s he wore in that game.

      • Tony Starks

        They look nothing alike. Shape off the shoe and the design, off. Not including materials.
        $200

        • Will

          My playoffs 12’s from 97′, 04′ & 2012 look exactly the same. I’m 39 and I remember very well how my 97 pair looked. All 3 with nice tumbled leather. These look pretty good, pics are pics bro, just wait til you see them closer and you’ll see. I have over a 100 pairs of Js and the 12’s are always made right.

          • Tony Starks

            I betcha the OG 12s are a lot larger than the other 2.The lizard reptile basketball print/faux leather whatever you want to call them is a completely different shape. Retro and OG 12s looks nothing a like. Even if you did a birdseyeview of both shoes, its evident. The faux leather on the Retros are straight. OG faux leather, have a slight curve then it arcs up, the curve of the faux leather above the jumpman tab is bigger than the toe box part. Retro is the opposite- the faux leather on the toe box is bigger than the part above the jumpman tab. Every retro doesn’t have the contrasting colors of jumpman tab and the back heel. Even the slits on the gills on the bottom soles is different on the OG than all the retros. The slit on the OG is a gummy bear type of feel, while the retros is the same material like the rest of the sole.

            Look at the top of the ankle collar, the shape is completely different on retro’s than OG, OG have a V shape and it’s not slanted. Retro is more curved and its slanted. OG look like a boot. Retro don’t.

            You know why they do all this? To save $. Look at the 2009 white/red and OG 97 white/red- they look nothing alike.lol
            http://ink361.com/app/users/ig-1047439409/charlottes23jays/photos/ig-1041530793190812120_1047439409

            Last best retro IMO, is the 2000 Concord. The 2000 shoe was a “little” bit smaller in mold and you can tell the patent leather trim and the size of the toe box was a little smaller but still it wasn’t off.

          • Tony Starks

            Not really.
            Differences:
            1. Shape is off- OG look more boot like. Toe box doesn’t curve as much like the retros. Ankle collar supposed to be V shape not C shape. The back slightly curves not go straight up. OG were taller as well.
            2. The Faux Leather (basketball/lizard print)- shape is way off. They intentionally took short cuts. Notice there is a lot more faux leather used on the OG than the retros (all of them). There supposed to be lesser faux leather on the toe box and gradually more going to the back of the heel where it goes to the jumpman tab. The retros is the complete opposite. There was a contrast between the faux leather- the jumpman tab and the heel part of the sole.
            3. Amount of leather used and what type of leather used and what’s the grade. Another reason the shoes look so distort- the retro look like they went on a weight loss project.
            4.The bottom sole. On the OG where the slit and the carbon fiber where it mets the side of the shoe- supposed to have gummy bear type of feel. All retros just has the same texture.
            5. The laces supposed to be thick. You can tell they got thinner.
            6. The first lace holes on the toe box moved further up.
            7. The toe box looks longer. And curves up more. A way to save to cost.

            Retros look more elongated.

            Go look at the OG White/red (Japan) 12 from 97 and compare it to the 2009 retro version.

            How much you want to bet the red is going to be off again.

            OG 12 and retro 12 are different.

          • Tony Starks

            8. The leather on the tongue needs to be puffy especially where the jumpman logo is, and it needs to be fold and stitched where the cloth meets the leather on the tongue.
            9. Padding on the collar has seen a decrease. It gets worse after each new release.
            10. On the toe box, the stitching needs to be evenly spaced.

            They are more concerned with the jumpman logo than anything else.lol

          • Will

            First of all the 09′ Rising Suns or Japan, however you want to call them (which I have a pair) are not OG’s or Retros, that was just a model Nike released. The material on that shoe is totally different, the leather is full of holes all around the shoe plus the patent leather instead of the sneak skin accents. We are discussing the FLU pair, do not bring a different style to the conversation. Playoffs, Taxis, Flu, Cherrys, French Blues, Grays and few other colorways are made with the same leather quality because I have all of these pairs Bro.

            Just stop making such a big deal about this shoe and RELAX! iF don’t like it don’t buy it, somebody else will.

            Take care and I will not reply to this nonesense anymore. I have to go back to work.

          • Will

            Snake skin – auto correction on my phone.

          • Tony Starks

            All the 12s is using the rising sun design.LOL What color is the Japanese national flag? Either that or the Bulls. That colorway was purposely done like to match the flag and the Bulls colorway. I’m sticking to Japan 12.

          • Tony Starks

            Do you see that up there! Everything I said is true. retro 12 looks like cheap imitation knock offs. Looks absolutely nothing like the OG. OG look like a boot. All retro 12s look like a elongated elf shoe.

          • Tony Starks

            First off, I call the White and red 12s that because it matches the Japanese national flag perfectly. I refuse to call them cherries just like calling them breds. If it don’t make sense, I refuse to call them that. The all white 12s looks nothing like the Japanese National flag.

            It is relevant because you brought up the playoff 12s as well. So why can’t I.

            It is a big deal when its $200. The leather quality they use is cheap cardboard. I wish they used the same leather when I was a young teen.

      • Tony Starks

        fine isn’t acceptable. Only on par with the OG’s is. I’d rather have the real deal instead of some cheap imitation that would be consider knock offs when they first came out.
        OG playoffs blow the 2012 playoff out the water. They use synthetic leather OR really cheap leather nowadays. It’s not the same shoe.
        Its like you hear that they are coming out, but once you see it, you just feel let down. That’s how I feel about the white/red 12 in 2009. I wish they were like the OG, I waited for how many years.
        * The red looks far off just like the 2009 White and reds.

    • RobCard100

      youre not gonna be saying that when they come out

      • Tony Starks

        I will pass. Go and compare all the other 12s since they retro them in 2003, it looks nothing like an original, the shape is so far off. It looks like an elf shoe. If you look at the 2009 white/red 12, that is what your going to get, the craftsmanship is even worse now, look at the top of tongue, sloppy stitching. From watching other videos, I can tell, there is no padding on the ankle collar.

        If its not the same version he wore in 1997, I’ll keep my $200. 🙂

        • RobCard100

          They’re not gonna be the same as in ’97. At this point, we sound like complaining babies

          • Tony Starks

            When said it “remastered”- I expect it. Nothing less. They are $200 for goodness sake! At this point, we should be demanding it. $200! I’m disappointed. I want the best. I had a pair of OGs, this is like a slap in the face especially with a joke of a nike box. It looks like a knock off. The way people reacted with those Aqua 8’s just recently, should be the same attitude. If this keeps up, Jordan Brand will have to do what the consumer ask for. I’m reacting like Sagat did off the SF movie when Bison paid him the Bison dollars. At the same time, I’m laughing just like Sagat when DJ got the Bison Dollars at the end. $200!

  • RobCard100

    metal or plastic lace eyelets?

    • Jt

      plastic (Regular jb cheap ass crap material)

  • VladSneakerhead

    I wish these would have the sick smiley and the flu imprint on heel just like the suede 12s from Nov 27.2009.that wold be cool

  • RetroKid823

    ??

  • YoungFella75

    Its the same fuckin sneakers no different!!! What? It comes wit jordan jersey too FOH…. N yall dumb ass run out n buy them each year….these shits been on the rack for the last 5yrs FUCK JORDAN!

    • Tony Starks

      Someone gets it. And its $200. If its not the exact same shoe he wore in that game, they can collect dust on the shelves. These hype beast are the main problem. If we stop buying them and hit them where it hurts, maybe than Jordan brand will give us what we truly want and not some imitation cheap knock off.

  • lovelife725

    they can collect dust on the shelves

    • Jt

      u really think they will?

      • Tony Starks

        The Aqua 8 did and the Maroon 6 did. If it will be awesome if it did. And it’s basically $200. People are going to be nit picky at this point. When they said remaster like the OGs, we expect it to be exactly like the 97 versions. These look cheap. No different than any other retro 12s (all of them).

  • lovelife725

    pass

  • chingchonglingdong

    yeah i will pass as well quality just isnt the same

  • CaptainJapan

    I LOVE THE 12s BUT THESE JUST LOOK SO BAD TO ME… JB REALLY LET ME DOWN, I WANNA SEE THE JUNE N JULY PAIR BEFORE I PICK ONE TO GET. NOW IM LEANING TOWARDS THE FRENCH BLUES OR THE MASTERS CUZ THEY FIRE AF OR MAYBE THE OVO 10s

  • Jt

    the black mettallic 5s are better

    • Tony Starks

      They fudged that one up too. Black transparent tongue? Yet they can put nike on the back but yet they have to have Jordan at the bottom of the shoe? They look cheap too.

  • The front of the shoe is all chipped and shit lmfaooo

  • iLL Vibe

    Why use 1 OG bred in the new pics? Comparison?

    • Tony Starks

      Why not? Truth be told, no retro 12, looks even remotely close to the OG 12, and the retro look like crap in comparison, this is no different. This is what your going to spend $200 people. Easy pass.

  • trslovekiller

    i prefer the french blues over theses joints becuz the blue is dope and its not an OG color so no other old sneakerhead that likes 12s would have these. and id pick the master pair up too over the flu games becuz it is just clean as fudgeeeee, all black and gold its like a alternate version of the taxis 12s which is every1s favorite so for me french blues, if i cant get those then the masters.

  • dahaoshiguang

    Love the Flu Games… but the quality on these has really let me down, guess ima pass on these and go for either the ovos or that premium air jordan 4(black or snakeskin) or any of the 5s that they are coming out with cuz those are cold azzs

  • Michael

    YES!!!! W!!! W!!! W!!!

    • Tony Starks

      your going to spend basically $200 on this Payless version? LOL.SMH

  • vday4everalone

    HAAAAAAAAHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAA these are so bad i wannna kill myslef cant believe they turned a iconic shoe to poop, jb cmon….

  • qcrew123

    i saw a review on the master 12s and they said the quality was not great, that means the quality on these are worst or the same, not as good bcuz they are the same shoe but diffrernt color, this was disappointing

    • Kevin Olivo

      The French blues has a better type of leather. Its more rich , and thick. Better then the masters, could tell you that

  • Fuqa Hypebeast

    First pics almost made me pass. Those glue stains are hideous.

    • werqwereQ

    From the latest pics….it shows the leather being made out of synthetic and 3 different reds from the top, mid, and bottom of the shoe. Has anyone else seen this? Because if it’s not going to be like the originals, I’m probably going to pass.
