You, too, can own a pair of Wendy Davis' fillibuster footwear

http://www.amazon.com/Mizuno-Womens-Wave-Rider-Running/dp/B008FFRLOU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1372257683&sr=8-1&keywords=mizuno+wave+rider+16

Read the reviews.

When I first began wearing these shoes I thought my reproductive rights were secure. Turns out, I couldn't have been more wrong. Luckily these shoes are really great for kicking republican legislators out of office! They want to shut down reproductive and health care facilities for the poor in Texas? Use these shoes to shut down the state capital!

These go perfectly with any back brace you may need after good old fashion filibusting for 9 hours (with 4 more to go). What's that? Your crappy mean spirited colleagues on the other side of the isle say it isn't fair? That's right ladies, this shoe is completely washable, so just shove it up their ass.

Most importantly, even if you wear these gems without sox for three days straight, they still smell better than a republican Lt Governor who tries to push a law through past midnight, which is absolutely and completely illegal. Yea, pretty stinky I know.

28. Yes, but for a 13 hour filibuster, EVERYONE is at the age for Depends!

Also useful when you want to do bad things to your astronaut ex-boyfriend's new girlfriend.

a legitimate form of protest.

16. They do

If you go down the page a bit, you can see the "also bought" items include men's shoes.

And… they make these things in narrow! They're pricey, but there's no cost too great for a pair of shoes that fit narrow feet!

27. They also have them in women's size 12

I could get them if I could afford to, but the price of $115 is out of my price range. In other words, right size, wrong price.

Better than a chastity belt.

I bought an extra pair to wear directly over my womb, which seems to have done the trick. No more pesky unsolicited probings! My bits can breathe a sigh of relief, especially thanks to the lightweight, breathable mesh.

You should have seen the riot with 3-ring Binders back when Mitt made his comment about "binders full of women."

29. Aw, shucks. You ladies get all the cool colors. Here are Speaker Boehner's...

...Mizuno Waver Riders.



Imagine what these must look like after a long night of drink...I mean filibustering. And imagine the odor.

About the Violet Tulle women's shoe, John says:

Even though...

1) I am a man and these are clearly women's shoes
2) I have never gone through the experience of wearing them
3) These shoes are not designed for my feet; and
4) They are of a color I would never wear...

I feel somehow compelled to decide for the shoe's female target market whether or not they should own them.

Don't.

Thank you.

30. In all seriousness, I have an earlier model pair of those

and they are really comfortable, great for running. I know that's subjective, but still. She picked a good shoe.

35. Whoa. I just discovered that your post is slightly misleading...

...about the color of Wendy's shoes.

Evidently Amazon shows Violet Tulle as the default color. But Wendy was wearing Rouge Red for the filibuster!

From The Washington Post Politics:



Say what you will about Wendy Davis’s now famous 11-hour filibuster of an abortion bill, but the Texas state senator got one thing indisputably right: her choice of footwear.

Davis sported a “rouge-red” pair of running shoes (they were Mizuno brand, probably a model called “The Wave Rider,” which promise joggers an “exquisitely smooth ride.”)


(actually Amazon lists the color as 'Rouge Red/Apple Green/Dark Shadow')



I hope everyone who rushed out and ordered a dozen pairs of Violet Tulle can change their order!

36. Yeah, the link defaults to violet tulle

However, I think DUers are smart enough to find the rouge red/apple green ones. They may have to settle for violet tulle, though, because I bet there's a run on rouge red.

37. Mizunos are GREAT shoes

Best shock absorption and support in a relatively light shoe that I have EVER been able to find.

I bought a pair several months ago, for precisely the above reasons.

So, highly recommended, and even MORE recommended now!
