words // Jordan Hagedorn

Recently I ranked my top 9 Jordan Retros of 2009. The AJ XII "Flu Game" of 2009 did not make that list. It was an OK retro but we had already been given the 2003 version of the Black/Red 12 and in true form. The 2009 release changed from all leather to a suede upper and the original TWO3 cue that I had grown to love was gone and the sick face was added. The sick face logo is creative, however being able to buy the actual shoe that MJ wore on the court is what makes this suede version simply an honorable mention for me.

Jordan Hagedorn is a sneakerhead working at Eastbay. What do you think of the 2009 "Flu Game" XII?
