Seems NBA players aren’t the only ones who can sell sports shoes…
Democrat Texas State Senator Wendy Davis wore a pair of sneaks during her 12 hour epic filibuster attempt last week to shut down Rethugly efforts to stop abortion in Texas.
Since then, those sneaks have been the hottest sport shoes on Amazon!
Who knew a filibuster is actually a great form of product placement?
The Mizuno Women’s Wave Rider 16 running shoe, worn by Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis (D) during her epic filibuster earlier this week, have become a symbol of the pro-choice position, at least if recent Amazon reviews are any indication. (They also were the best-selling shoe on Amazon on Friday)
The shoe’s Amazon page has been bombarded by the site’s users, creating an online forum for people to celebrate or deride the Texas state senator. (Davis wore the shoes during an 11-hour filibuster that in large part prevented the Texas state Senate from passing one of the harshest anti-abortion bills in the country.)
Geez, I can just see Speaker Boehner now, schlepping a pair of venerable Chuck Taylors…
