The Air Jordan 12 “Flu Game” is another pair that will return in 2016. As many of you know, 2016 celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Jordan 12 and this is one of a few classic releases set to return. Jordan Brand revisits the original colorway of the Air Jordan 12 “Varsity Red”, following the “Flu Game” version in 2009. 09’s nubuck “Flu Game” 12 wasn’t quite pleasing for purists but it brought to light the moment when Michael Jordan played with the Flu. This year, Jordan Brand brings back the OG Varsity Red in it’s original form. The Air Jordan 12 “Varsity Red” debuted in 1997 and re-released in 2003.
