While a good pair of shoes can last for years, that kind of lifespan doesn’t happen by accident. Cut down on wear and tear with this leather shoe horn, a time-honored addition to any man’s bureau. From lace-ups to loafers, this handy accessory will help you slip on your footwear with ease—while saving their heels in the process.
How it Works
This tool is designed to ease your foot into a shoe without damaging the “counter”—the back of the shoe that supports your heel. More often than not, guys will jam their feet right in, which can flatten the counter and spoil the shoe’s structure. Using a shoehorn will keep your counter crisp, adding months or even years to the life of the footwear.
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.
