The Air Jordan 12 is cemented in basketball history — and for good reason. Michael Jordan’s twelfth signature shoe would barre witness to greatness in Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals as his Airness overcame what would be called the “Flu Game” (or “Pizza Game”) with a stat line of 38-7-5 in a crucial win against the Utah Jazz. In doing so, Jordan would then go on to lead the Chicago Bulls to a second three-peat title run.
As the 23rd anniversary of the famous “Flu Game” just passed, it appears that Jordan Brand is releasing a remixed version as the Air Jordan 12 “Reverse Flu Game” is set to drop at the end of this year.
