Wendy Davis, Mizuno Sneakers

Texas senator Wendy Davis came prepared for her filibuster.

Knowing that the rules state she would have to stand (no leaning or sitting!) on the floor of the Senate with no breaks for meals or even to use bathroom, she ditched her kitten heels for a pair of pink sneakers.

Her running shoes of choice? Mizuno Wave Rider 16.

The $116 kicks helped her last for over 11 hours as she argued to block a bill eliminating most of the state's abortion clinics. The lawmaker also wore a dress and a comfy coat, which covered her back brace—another accessory to help her stand the long hours.

Now that's smart style!
