Unfortunate news for those who were looking forward to this new colorway.

Set for release in 2025, the Air Jordan 12 "Bloodline" was initially poised to make a significant impact. This iconic silhouette, long revered by collectors and enthusiasts, was expected to captivate audiences with its bold design and timeless appeal. The "Bloodline" edition, is characterized by an all-black aesthetic accented with striking metallic red highlights. It represented a modern twist on the classic Air Jordan 12. However, the announcement of the "Flu Game" return has overshadowed the "Bloodline" release, shifting the focus back to a beloved classic.

Despite the initial excitement surrounding the "Bloodline" colorway, the Air Jordan 12 "Flu Game" is now generating significant anticipation and excitement. The "Bloodline" had promised premium materials and superior craftsmanship. It boasts a stitched leather upper and a carbon fiber shank plate for durability and support. Yet, with the unexpected reintroduction of the "Flu Game," sneaker enthusiasts are now eagerly awaiting the classic black and red colorway. This shift underscores the enduring appeal of the "Flu Game." It offers fans both old and new a chance to own a piece of sneaker history that continues to capture the hearts and minds of the sneaker community.

The shoe was set to feature a striking red and black color scheme. Made from premium leather, the shoe would have flaunted a sleek silhouette accented with textured overlays. The iconic Jumpman logo would have adorned the heel, while a carbon fiber shank plate promised stability. Completed with a sturdy rubber outsole, it would have delivered exceptional traction both on and off the court. Unfortunately, this release has been cancelled.

The Air Jordan 12 "Bloodline" will no longer be released on January 4th, 2025. Instead, the Air Jordan 12 "Flu Game" will be returning next year.
