Let’s take another glance at the upcoming 2016 Air Jordan XII Flu Game, this year’s reincarnation of one of MJ’s most memorable sneakers. Popular thanks to his his infamous food-poisoned 38-point performance in the 1997 NBA Finals, this pair sports black full-grain leather up top, beautifully contrasted with pebbled Varsity Red leather and a matching red sole at the bottom. Black laces blend in with the upper, while the tongue graphics have been embroidered in red.
Retailing for the expected price of $190, the Air Jordan XII Flu Game will officially hit stores like Sneaker Politics this Saturday, May 28. Online sites like Nike.com and Foot Locker will release the sneaker at at 10:00 a.m. EST. In addition, you can already take your pick from a number of sellers on eBay. Given the extreme popularity of this sneaker, that may be your best chance at acquiring a pair.
