We’re not even a third of the way through 2024, but Jordan Brand‘s 2025 lineup has already started to leak en masse: after it was revealed that the Air Jordan 5 “Black Metallic” was primed for a 2025 return, it’s now being rumored that the Air Jordan 12 “Flu Game” will make a comeback of its own. A black-and-red iteration of Michael Jordan‘s 12th signature sneaker that got its nickname from a flu-addled MJ’s legendary 38-point performance against the Utah Jazz in the 1997 NBA Finals, the “Flu Game” originally released that same year and was last retroed in 2016.

Thanks to its Chicago Bulls-esque black and red color scheme and its rich history, the “Flu Game” is one of the most iconic Air Jordan releases ever. During its last retro release, it garnered $20 million USD in sales in a single day (and, hilariously, was spotlighted in a special campaign with comedian JB Smoove). That 2016 retro is pictured above, as no images of the purported 2025 model have been revealed, but a joint report from Sneaker Files and zsneakerheadz indicates it’ll touch down sometime next spring.

Keep it locked here for more info on pricing and an exact release date as it’s made available.
