Who Is the Shoehorn For?

How Does the Shoehorn Protect Your Shoes From Damage?
Repeatedly shoving a shoe off and on can damage it. The shoehorn scoop slides in between your heel and the heel cup of the shoe, protecting it from damage.
What Is the Handle Design?
The handle design is in the shape of a koi fish. But don't worry! It's not as slippery as a fish, and is easy to hold as you manoeuver your foot into your shoe.
What Is the Shoehorn Made From?
The shoehorn is 70cm long, and made primarily from cellulose acetate. The centrepiece is made from rich, varnished wood, and the head is coated plastic.
History of the Shoehorn
One of the first historical mentions of the shoehorn was from the 16th century, when Queen Elizabeth ordered 18 shoehorns to assist her with her royal footwear. In the past, shoehorns were made from the horns of animals, ivy, shell, silver or bone. This shoehorn is reminiscent of this type of stylish accessory, designed with a shining, elegant handle.
