Air Jordan 12 Flu Game Performance Review

Posted on

In order to celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Jordan 12 in 2016 , The  Air Jordan 12 Flu Game  was returned . The last release came in 2009 which was on the limited side, but differed from the OG and first retro. This time the shoes had a special insignia by the heel that referenced the game.

There are some pictures for the game in 1997 , it is perfect on the court.

Michael Jordan during Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals was caused by some bad Salt Lake City room service apparently.

Michael Jordan wore this pair during the finals where his team, the Chicago Bulls played against the Utah Jazz. Before the start in game 5 of the series, Jordan came down with flu like symptoms. Even though he was very sick, he still went on to play and scored 38 points. The bulls would go on to win that game 90 to 88.


Here is the details of this shoes :

Air Jordan 12 Flu Game
Colorway: Black/Varsity Red
Release Date: May 28, 2016
Retail: $190
Product Number: 130690-002


The feature real Black with  Red Air Jordan 12’s are about to get the Retro treatment .It is very close to OG from 1997.

For the material , it used the  premium tumbled leather and Varsity Red accents.Actually the material of  leather are not easy to keep and the breathability is not great. It doesn’t take too long since there is practically zero ventilation , yeah ,  your body’s heat and moisture will speed up the process.



For the cushioning , Full length Zoom Air used  as usually . Again the cushioning is great . They are comfortable enough wearing even you playing  longer time . I can not feel a hurt ,just snug .

if you are looking for the responsive cushion’s sneakers , yes , it is the best one for you .

I loved the Air Jordan 12  according to  its looks but that fact that they can handle practically anything you can throw at them made me love them even more.and you can do anything what you want to do .


For the traction, Herringbone is featured in similar fashion to the previous Air Jordan signature – the Air Jordan XI .  It will be lockdown and improve the grip very well .

However , please make sure you plant your feet and push off from the base of the shoe, then you can do anything what you want .





For fit , it is true size , you can buy  the size that you bought before .but if you want to wear double  sock ,maybe you can choose over a half size . that is will be better .



Overall ,Midfoot and heel lockdown were great,  the cushioning. is also  perfect . I never once had an issue after they broke in. As expected with leather based sneakers.

How do you think?
