The Beatles debut bowl cuts, and an iconic hairstyle is born. Kate Middleton wears a wrap dress, next thing you know it's the world's favorite style. Wendy Davis stands through a 13-hour filibuster with no breaks, no food, and no water, and a new wave of affection for sensible, comfortable, stylish sneakers begins.
Her Mizuno Women's Wave Rider 16 running shoes have shot to instant popularity on Amazon, not in the least bit due to some snarky, often hilarious commenters — the review space on Amazon is often a gold mine for this sort of thing. Remember those crazy horse masks?
Though there are many haiku involved, our favorites are short and sweet. Take "Great shoes! Did the trick. Only a 24 hour waiting period for the shoes to arrive (in Pennsylvania). Pretty fast! But you will need spousal consent before wearing the shoes. Parental consent if you are under 18. Totally worth it though!" for example. Pretty snappy! And then there's "I bought an extra pair to wear directly over my womb, which seems to have done the trick." But perhaps the best one reminds you that these babies are "guaranteed to outrun patriarchy on race day."
Of course, Davis' shoes are hardly the most impressive thing about her recent actions. But thanks to these reviews, they've become a funny symbol for her relatable awesomeness, and that's something we can definitely get behind! (ABC News)
