Yesterday we broke the news about the White/Red Air Jordan 12 returning Holiday 2009, and today we have more Air Jordan 12 news. The Black/Red Air Jordan 12 will also return Holiday 2009. However, Jordan Brand made a few changes. Instead of
red leather, they will feature red suede. The new Black/Red Air Jordan 12 makeover pays tribute to Michael Jordan’s legendary “Flu Game”. MJ scored 38 points in the 1997 NBA Finals (Game 5) Utah Jazz vs Chicago Bulls. This is just one of the reasons why MJ is the greatest player to ever play the game of basketball.
As of right now the “Flu Game” Air Jordan 12 Black/Red is slated to release in November. We would also like to mention that the 12’s will come with a new feature which is symbolic of MJ’s sickness. The ticket price will be $150.
UPDATE: The BLACK will be suede, not the red. We apologize for the mix-up. Don’t have a cow man!!
