8 Best Amazon Reviews Of Wendy Davis's Shoes

Unless you have been living underground, you've probably heard of Wendy Davis. You know, the feminist-super-hero-Senator who filibustered a Texas abortion bill for 13 hours. Her story as a single-mom, Harvard Law grad, oh-hell-no Senator has inspired hundreds of thousands of Americans and may have made yours truly tear up while watching her in action. According to a Wikipedia edit, she is also known as "The LeBron James of filibustering." And like all-first class ballers, Senator Davis' infamous pink shoes have also risen to fame on Amazon reviews. Dorothy had the ruby slippers, Senator Wendy Davis has her Mizuno Women's Wave Rider 16 Running Shoe in Rouge Red. 

And so, good readers of PolicyMic, I give you the eight best reviews with accompanying GIF reactions. Enjoy, happy Friday, and thank God we still have a sense of humor after this crazy week. 

1. "These shoes (and a woman's body) have a way of shutting the whole thing down," StandWithWendy

Via: Reactiongifs.com

"An essential tool for running down the clock in a state 773 miles wide and 790 miles long! These shoes are perfect for those days when you must spend 13+ hours standing, not lean on your desk or take any breaks, even for meals or to use the bathroom. The snazzy hot pink color brings out your inner badassness and helps you to 'humbly give voice to thousands of Texans' and stop a 'raw abuse of power' in its tracks. Raise a feminist army and lead the charge when your competitors cheat and change the rules on you. These Mizuno's are built to protect your feet from mudslinging and add sunshine to the political process. Highly recommended for fierce women and anyone who's not a Greedy Old Prick (GOP)."

Verdict: Five stars

2. "Men, do not try these on!" Joshua Jones

"I tried on a pair at the local mall and suddenly Texas Republicans started telling me what to do with my genitals. They started explaining reproduction to me like I was a seventh grader. Unfortunately, being male, I had no way to shut the whole thing down. I'm so confused ... "

Verdict: One star

3. "Shoes For Those Who Shall Not Be Moved," Laura L. Orem

Via: Tumblr, http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/you%20shall%20not%20pass%20gif

"These are the perfect shoes for standing your ground against misogyny, ignorance, and deliberate stupidity. The cushioning will support you through marathons or filibusters, and the jazzy pink color will remind your opponents that you have style as well as substance. I highly recommend these shoes for those who want to fight sexism and reproductive tyranny by standing firm, kicking a little good ol' boy ass, and claiming your rights as [an] American and a woman."

Verdict: Five stars 

4. "These shoes were made for talkin'," Cowgirl "Cowgirl"

"These shoes were made for talkin'
And that's just what she'll do.
Talk and talk and talk until
The special session's through."

Verdict: Five stars

5. "Do not buy these shoes," Tom Miller

Via: Reactiongifs.com

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.

Verdict: One star

6. "Riding a wave to choice," k. bolivar

Via: Tumblr.com, c-asti.tumblr

"I was in an argument last night with my husband over the rights of women's feet. He said a woman has no right to do with her feet what she wants. He bought me a pair of no-name sneakers and tried to force me to wear them. What he didn't know is that my mind, and my feet, were prepared for this day, for we knew it would come. I pulled out from my back pocket my Mizuno Women's Wave Rider (in pink), held it in the air and screamed out, "BUSTER!! You ever try to tell me what to do with my feet ever again and I'll ride this wave up your ... "

Well, he got so scared on seeing me put those wave riders on that he ran out of the house. I yelled out, 'KEEP RUNNING BUSTER ... ' and I chased him a good block or so with my Mizuno Waver Riders (in pink) in my hand. If I'm lucky, he'll return a changed man. If not, he had it comin' to him."

Verdict: Five stars

7. "It's up to you," Freedom to Choose

Via: Radiantshadows.com

"Whether you are for or against the issue, these shoes are for you. They will enable you to stand and make your point, and hold against the tyranny of the majority. They can help in standing, or walking your precinct, or just plain working the phones.

I am pro-Wave Rider."

Verdict: Five stars 

8. "Marathon shoe for marathon filibustering," M. Black

Via: Tumblr.com, Wyatted

"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."

Verdict: Five stars
