Its official, the Air Jordan 12 “Flu Game” will release in the United States on on the 27th of November, “Black Friday”.
The kicks combine black nubuck and textured red leather on the upper with a red red midsole and outsole. The colorway is known as the one Michael Jordan wore against the Utah Jazz in game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals.
The kicks are not 100% faithful to the original rather they are more of a tribute. The original came in black leather while this pair is in nubuck. Also the on the heel “97[sick face]38” is printed a reference to Jordan’s to point production in the game where the Bulls edged out the Jazz, 90 to 88. The sick face is also featured on the tongue.
