Air Jordan XII

Air Jordan XII

The Air Jordan XII—otherwise known as "The Flu Shoe”—is most famous for being worn during Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals, when Jordan dropped 38 points, including the game-winner, despite battling the flu.

Born in 1997, these Jordans were the first to be released under the exclusive Jordan brand, as MJ's kicks finally garnered their own Nike sub-brand—and deservedly so.

The design of the XII seemed to capture elements from the IX and X, but it also drew its inspiration from a 19th-century dress boot and the Japanese Rising Sun flag.

The XII is one of the best-looking and most durable Air Jordans of all time. It's certainly deserving of a place on this list, and one could make a plausible argument for the XII being higher on the list.
