Standing up for 12-hours is tough.
Standing up to filibuster in Texas is brutal. You get no breaks: no food and no water. You get no relief: no bathroom, no sitting and no leaning. You have to speak only about the bill being discussed.
You need to be in shape and you need a really, really great pair of shoes. Just ask Democratic Senator, Wendy Davis.
According to Today.com, “The 50-year-old Davis, an avid runner and cyclist, held court in a pair of Rouge Red/Apple Green Mizuno Wave Rider 16s, along with a floral dress and long coat, which covered the back brace she wore to endure the session.”
The Mizuno Wave Rider 16 has great cushioning and superb shock absorption. In fact, the April 2013 edition of Fitness magazine awarded the Wave Rider 16’s “Best for Road Running for runners with high arches.”
Fitness describes the Mizuno Wave Rider 16 running shoes as having: “Great shock absorption that helps keep feet from tiring out on long-mileage days.”
Apparently, Fitness was right; after all, they kept Senator Davis on her feet for 11 hours.
Shop the Mizuno Wave Rider 16 while you still can—if the Senator’s growing Twitter fan base is any indication, these shoes won’t be around for long!
