For those of you that just can’t get enough, here’s some new, high-resolution images of this month’s most anticipated sneaker, the Air Jordan 12 Retro Flu Game. Made famous after MJ’s 38-point performance against the Utah Jazz in the 1997 NBA Finals, this 2016 release is long-overdue, despite having received re-releases in 2003 and 2009’s disappointing suede-covered version (yuck).
Staying as true to the sneaker’s original 1997 release as possible, this pair combines black ribbed leather with Varsity Red pebbled leather. A matching Varsity Red sole provides the cushioning, while a black carbon fiber shank plate can be seen underneath.
Priced at $190, the Air Jordan XII Flu Game is scheduled to release in stores on Saturday, May 28. Considering this sneaker’s high popularity, expect stores to sellout fast. If you’d like to grab a pair early, most sizes can be easily found on eBay. Here’s a direct link to the listings if you’d prefer to go that route.
