The Air Jordan 12 “Flu Game” is a black and red version of Michael Jordan’s twelfth signature shoe. MJ wore these during Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals while having flu-like symptoms. Despite his condition, he was able to lead the Chicago Bulls to victory over the Utah Jazz. These shoes remain as one of the most memorable Air Jordan 12’s to date.
The OG version of the sneaker was an all leather black upper with a red midsole and sole. The retroed versions of the shoe feature an all black nubuck upper with the leather red midsole. The back detail of the shoe displays a “97/38” print with a sick face inbetween to emphasize the Jordan model.
