Excited for Jordan Brand’s 2016 release slate? You should be as the Jumpman is bringing back the classic Air Jordan 12 “Flu Game” retro for a release on May 28th, 2016. Mike originally wore this Bred colorway during an NBA Finals match against the Utah Jazz in which he was feeling a bit under the weather. Sure, he actually suffered from some inconvenient food poisoning at his Salt Lake City, Utah hotel room, but the “Flu Game” nickname just has a better ring to it. Back in remastered form, this Air Jordan 12 benefits from a premium black tumbled leather while an asymmetrical mudguard inspired by Japan’s rising sun flag is hit with a Chicago-esque Varsity Red. Check out a full look at 2016’s release below and head to our Jordan release dates page for more of the latest Jumpman updates.

One of my few must cop of the year.

First absolute MUST of the year... Don't understand why they're coming in that Nike box though. 12s didn't come in that box.

Wrong. It was the silver Jordan Brand box. Jordan Brand started in 96 with the 12s.

I guess I am wrong. I'll own that. I thought I was right because the Obsidians, first Js I ever got, came in the silver JB box, and 12s were definitely the first JB shoes.

You guys are taking this way too seriously. The man with the flu helped win that game, not his shoes.

@BackseatJuice Thank you!!!!!! I said this on Complex and people tried to tell me Im wrong!! They wee always called Flu Games...GTFOH.The Flu Games (suede/sick face) were the 2009 version cause it commemorated that particular game. Nicknames didn't kick it until mid 2000s. We always referenced the color style or "Playoffs".

@BackseatJuice Yeah, why must everything need a nickname these days. Back in the 90s nicknames weren't even used. They were simply known as Air Jordans

@youngharlem86 @BackseatJuice Drives me nuts with the PLAYOFF 11s that everyone calls Breds. They're the Playoffs. Of course in 97 and 98 he wore multiple shoes in the Playoffs and it got a little more difficult, but it's so out of hand. I like a nice story with my kicks, but not every shoe needs a specific nickname. I see the ones without a remote nickname possibility just get called Bulls or Chicago.
