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 Air Jordan 12 “Cherry” colorways. 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.
