“She’s the best sister ever,” says Carissa of her twin.
Carissa's Air Jordan 12 Retro for Doernbecher Freestyle is a tribute to her favorite things and people, including Savannah. Her stuffed dog Max and favorite sports are depicted on the outsoles, a picture of her family is printed along the interior and a slice of pizza is represented on the lace deubres. Of course, Savannah's name runs down the heel of the left shoe and she made an alternate colorway of the shoe just for her twin.
