During the 1997 Finals against the Utah Jazz, Michael Jordan was overcome with Flu-like symptoms. Despite his illness, he calmly went out and willed his team to a 90-87 win in a game that many will say, considering his condition, was the best that he ever played.
To play homage to Michael Jordan’s performance in the “Flu Game”, Jordan Brand is set to release the “Flu Game” Air Jordan Retro XII. A twist of the classic Black/Red Air Jordan XII that he wore during that game, the “Flu Game” Air Jordan Retro XII features a Black nubuck upper sitting on a Red midsole/sole with Red accents. In a nod to the “Flu Game”, to tongue and the outer heel feature graphics of a sick face and “97” “38” for the year and the amount of points MJ dropped that night.
The “Flu Game” Air Jordan Retro XII is set to release this November. Read on for more.
