Following the success of its “Wings” edition, the Jumpman jumps back into its time machine to go back to 1997’s NBA Finals with a retro release of a popular Air Jordan 12 colorway. The scene is set with Michael Jordan leading the Chicago Bulls on the road against the Utah Jazz. This game would go down in basketball and footwear history due to MJ contributing 38 points, seven rebounds, five assists, three steals, and a block all while battling a stomach bug. The asymmetrical silhouette hosts traditional black and red leather with “Two 3” branding going down its tongue for a twist on MJ’s iconic number.
The Air Jordan 12 “Flu Game” will officially release on May 28 for $190 USD at select retailers.
