Sneakers that helped Wendy Davis in 10-hour+ filibuster see amazing Amazon.com reviews

The shoes that made Wendy Davis, a Texas state senator have seen their comments explode on Amazon.com. On Wednesday the 50-year-old wore them during a marathon 10-hour-plus filibuster that blocked an anti-abortion bill in the Texas state senate.

Davis wore Mizuno Women's Wave Rider 16 running shoes. While not currently the recipient of an endorsement by Mizuno that might change.

In fact, John Oliver, currently guest hosting "The Daily Show" while Jon Stewart is off making a movie, suggested that said sneaker endorsement might be in her future. We assume, though, that would only happen if Mizuno was run by progressives.

Among the comments hitting the product page at Amazon.com:

The next time you have to spend 13 hours on your feet without food, water or bathroom breaks, this is the shoe for you. Guaranteed to outrun patriarchy on race day.

While you still have the choice, run and get a pair of pink ones before the legislature closes down all of the shoe stores in your state that offer them.

I have been running marathons for at least a year -- ever since I escaped from the binder(s full of women, remember Romney?). It was hard to climb out but once out, it was time to run.

But I can definitely recommend these shoes. I stand around at work all day and listen to a bunch of right wing guys explain the world to me. For example, he President's a Commie or Nazi from Kenya. Everyone except white conservative male Americans is a waste of skin. Oh, BTW, we need to be out burning more crosses. The usual work banter. (I'm a former MENSA member, so I don't catch on to conservative thinking real quick. ly.)

but ever since I saw TX State senator Wendy Davis bitc*slap a whole passel of nutcase antiabortion Texas male Senators up against the walls of the TX Legislature, I've been wondering what kind of woman wears these shoes. Obviously the kind that has to put up with stupid people (male and female) telling her and the rest of the women in TX what they can do with their own bodies, because, Rick Perry.

These shoes seem to have a magical power to make one think straight, stand up strong against evil pinheaded tyrants, and generally give the wearer the mojo to do what needs to be done (h/t to Garrison Keillor). The Democrats in Congress are in SERIOUS need of about 250 pair...of these shoes. The MALE Democrats in Congress need a serious pair too...need to grow a set. Republicans can't handle the truth...or these shoes...their heads would explode from getting too smart too fast. OTOH, that might be a not-too-bad-thing.
It's unclear if sales have gone up since Davis' filibuster. It's 100 percent guaranteed that the rating for the shoe has risen.
