No signature line of sneakers has bore the same level of cultural intersection as the Air Jordan. Bringing together sneaker and sport culture as one, the Air Jordan has often seen itself the benefactor of various nicknames based on some MJ’s most dominant performances. The Air Jordan Retro XII (12) in black and red earns its “Flu Game” moniker thanks to MJ’s inspirational NBA playoff performance in 1997 against the Jazz as he dropped 38 points under less than ideal circumstances battling the flu. The retro carries the same familiar color-blocking that made the shoe such a stand-out of the era alongside some tributes to MJ’s 38 point feat such as the touches on the heel and tongue.
