Sneaker of the Week: 4/22/10

April 22, 2010

It has been a long time, but it’s back.  This week’s Sneaker of the Week is the Flu Games!  I know these were released last november, but I just took these bad boys out of the closet today.  I ave yet to wear them, but just looking at them and how fresh made me want to profile them.  This edition of the Jordan Retro 12’s sports the black/red colorway Jordan rocked during the 1997 NBA Finals against the Utah Jazz.  The are called the flu games because Jordan torched the Jazz 38 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 steals.  What made this performance more memorable was that Jordan was extremely sick with the flu!  Located on the nubuck upper is a sick face with the number 97 and 38 on the sides of it to commemorate this classic moment!

FLU GAMES!
