Continue upping your shoe care game with a classic boar’s hairbrush from Izola.

Birchbox Breakdown

More than just a handsome bureau-top accessory, a shoehorn is a necessary tool for proper care of your footwear. From lace-ups to loafers, you’ll find yourself using this every day—and saving the heels of your shoes in the process.

How it Works

Shoehorns are designed to ease your foot into a shoe without damaging the shoe’s “counter”—the back of the shoe that wraps around your foot and supports your heel. Without a horn, guys tend to jam their feet in, which in turn damages not just the counter, but eventually the entire shoe’s structure. Damage leads to discomfort for the wearer, so adding this extra step to your routine will save you both time and money.

How to Use

Place the blade of the shoehorn against the counter of one shoe. Insert the tip of your foot into the front of the shoe and push down with your heel on the blade of the shoehorn. Remove. Repeat.

this is a well built shoe horn. for all of those that dont think they need a shoe horn, think again...helps putting tight shoes on, and preserves them from being stretched out by your fingers

Interesting

I found this to be a pretty interesting product. I have never owned a shoehorn before, but now I have one. It makes me feel pretty flashy and sophisticated, so if for no reason other than that it's worth having one I suppose.

Great!

This little thing is great! I had been meaning to get a shoehorn for a while and this one fits the bill. It slides out nicely, and really has made putting on some of those tighter fitting shoes much easier!

A great addition to anyones shoe collection.

Its a all leather very durable shoe horn. I never thought of using a shoe horn because sometimes its just easier to stuff your foot into a show but honestly its not worth it because it ruins the shoe really badly. I recommend everyone use one to elongate the life of the shoe and this on is a must.

So strong and so so smooth...

I've had metal shoe horns in the past, but this BIRCHBOX shoe horn is so different. It's strong (sturdy), so stylish (leather), and so so smooth (baby soft). I use this for any shoe that falls below my ankle and my heels and my shoes, and my feet, thank me for it. I have a pair of Bar III shoes that I love and this shoe horn makes it so I don't even have to untie my laces to get in there. If you don't have one, buy 3 and put them in your overnight, your shoe case, and hanging on the wall as a piece of art, cause it's amazing.

It's a shoe horn, right? WRONG!

Let's face it, we're not grandfathers yet, and a shoe-horn is a shoe-horn right? WRONG! The leather is fantastic quality, nice rope to allow you to hang it on something too, nice all around product! Get yourself one!
