Only Michael Jordan could redefine the legacy of a sneaker and a viral infection all in the same night. June 11, 1997 will forever be remembered as the birth of the air jordan 12 bordeaux for sale "Flu Game." In order to properly understand the significance of the "Flu Game" XIIs, you first have to revisit the timeline of events that led up to this sneaker being branded as such.

Throwing it back to '97, Jordan Brand comes through with one of the most anticipated retro releases of 2016; the air jordan 12 retro dark grey Retro 'Flu Game'. It's title stems from MJ's historic playoff run leading up to his game 5 performance in the 1997 NBA Finals against the Utah Jazz in which he scored 38 points, leading the Bulls to victory all while suffering from the flu. 19 years later we see a remastered version of the iconic retro, utilizing all the premium materials from the original making it as close to the original as possible. Gear up for the release and don't sleep when it finally drops Saturday, May 28th

Coming off the success of his personal favorite model and most popular Jordan, the Air Jordan 11, Tinker had to design a silhouette that could stand on its own and be the new face of Jordan Brand. The air jordan 12 wings black and white was the first Jordan introduced by the Jordan Brand and the last Jordan to come in a Nike box. Tinker designed these to be the most durable Air Jordan out of the whole series up to that point. Part of this was out of necessity as a result of MJ being in his second year of the glorious second 3-peat for the Bulls.

During the 1997 NBA Finals, the Chicago Bulls and Utah Jazz were battling it out for the Championship. During Game 5, Michael Jordan experienced flu-like symptoms that worried many if he was able to play. Despite feeling ill, he performed at his best putting down 38 points that game wearing the air jordan retro 12 shoe laces in the red and black colourway. The Air Jordan 12 "Flu Game" was originally released back in 1997, then later retro'd in 2003, followed by another re-release in 2009. However, the 2009 pair didn't meet 'OG' standards as they were built with a nubuck upper that included detailing on the heel as a nod to the year and points Michael Jordan scored that day.

As Jordan Brand is building on a big year for the air jordan 12 ovo white/gold the "Flu Game" finally returns as a remastered version for 2016 and will release just like they did when they were OGs. The shoe features a tumbled leather Black upper with basketball textured Varsity Red mudguard and outsole. The Nike Air Jordan 12 Retro "Flu Game" will drop on Saturday the 28th of May 2016 for the retail of R2099.00. This release will be available in store and online from 9h30am.
