Buy Wendy Davis' Pink Abortion Filibuster Sneakers

Very uncool: running a story about ultimate fearless champion Wendy Davis that leads with her "petite" demeanor in "pink running shoes." Very cool: those pink running shoes.

In NYT #sb5 story, Wendy Davis not mentioned by name until paragraph 17. Until then she's "petite" in "pink sneakers"

The New York Times already deleted its patronizing (and unsurprising) "cute 'lil politician did something last night" lede —They can do that? — but we'll admit that the sneakers themselves are pretty fly. Or maybe we just want to emulate Wendy Davis by whatever means possible. Either way, you can buy pink Mizuno Wave Rider sneakers here.

My issues is the shoes aren't pink, they are red. And the reason it really pisses me off is because I was looking for them for over an hour this morning, and no matter where I looked anytime I put a Pink filter on I couldn't find anything remotely similar.

And yes, I think it would be the coolest thing in the world if all the activists last night spend the whole new special session at the capital protesting in the red Wendy sneakers.
