The Air Jordan 12 “Reverse Flu Game” rearranges the color block of an original colorway of Michael Jordan’s twelfth signature shoe. The “Reverse Flu Game” inverts the classic black leather upper and red pattern leather mudguard of the original Jordan 12 worn by Michael most famously during his epic “Flu Game” performance of Game 5 of the ’97 NBA Finals. Whereas the original “Flu Game” featured a leather upper, the “Reverse Flu Game” displays a plush Varsity Red suede construction. The mudguard features a contrasting cut of black pebbled leather. The black rope laces sit on top a red suede tongue. A nod to the original design of the Air Jordan 12, the tongue displays a black embroidered Jumpman on the top and black “Two 3” branding beneath the laces. Additional design elements include a carbon fiber midfoot plate, two traction pods on the black outsole, and a red Jumpman on the toe.
