Wendy Davis' Filibuster Shoes Provoke Passionate Amazon Reviews (PHOTOS)

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.)

Consider, for example, these dueling reviews:

Or this review by a man who really hates abortion:

This woman quite obviously supports a women's right to choose:

Mizuno didn’t immediately return a request for comment from The Huffington Post.

For good measure, here is a photo of the shoes being worn by Wendy Davis:
