The Air Jordan 12 holds a special place in all of our sneaker hearts. The infamous model was worn during the now iconic ‘Flu Game’ and when MJ captured his fifth NBA Championship. The AJ12 is not just a part of sneaker history, it’s a part of NBA history. Jordan Brand is set to continue the sneaker’s strong lineage with the Air Jordan 12 Retro ‘Black/Game Royal.’ Not dressed in the typical shades of White/Black/Red that was common throughout MJ’s tenure with the Chicago Bulls, this colorway is more akin to something ‘His Airness’ would’ve rocked during his two-year stint with the Washington Wizards.
The tumbled leather upper comes in menacing Black. Textured suede at the forefoot comes in Game Royal, as do accents at tongue, heel and the rubber outsole. This two-tone execution is eerily similar to the ‘Flu Game’ 12’s. As a result, you’ve got something that’s familiar yet all its own.
