UPDATE: Air Jordan 12 “Flu Game” Will Not Release in 2025

Published on

In 1997, during Game 5 of the NBA Finals, Michael Jordan made the Air Jordan 12 “Flu Game” legendary. The shoes became iconic when he battled flu-like symptoms and led the Chicago Bulls to victory against the Utah Jazz, possibly due to eating bad pizza. Now, Jordan Brand is reintroducing this beloved colorway in 2025, honoring its lasting impact and allowing a new generation to connect with its timeless significance.
