Check out these Black and Red Air Jordan 12 “Flu Game” editions...
The Flu Game, as it is referred to, was the game in the 1997 where Michael battled through the flu to drop 38 points.
These kicks commemorate the accomplishment with OG colorway, but with sueade instead of leather and detailing like the 38 for the total points scored in the game, 97 for the the year it happened, and of course the sick smiley face logo originally featured in Mike's "Driven From Within" book. These sneakers are set to drop sometime this November.
Maybe all that Gatorade, was worth it after all, looks like it helped Mike stay in the game.
Here is a look back at that historic game thanks to "HoopsEncyclopedia".
