Senator Wendy Davis became an overnight sensation thanks to a marathon filibuster on Tuesday night, but one thing caught many people's eye as they watched the District 10 rep speak--her awesome pink sneakers.


To meet the requirements of a filibuster, Davis was not allowed to sit or lean on any object or person for support. A pair of heels just weren't going to cut it.

So Davis opted for a comfy pair of bright pink running shoes. The Mizuno Women's Wave Rider 16 shoes retail for about $115. You can get them directly at the manufacturer's website or via online retailer Amazon.
