The MORTIMER Shoe Hornis handcrafted from Ox horn in the United Kingdom by skilled artisans using a method of manufacture that has remained largely unchanged for more than 250 years. At almost 12 inches long, the MORTIMER Shoehorn is generous in dimension and perfect in balance. The result of several evolutions directly overseen by Kirby Allison, this shoe horn was made specifically for those with fine taste in shoes. This is unquestionably the ultimate shoehorn for the discerning gentleman - and a gentleman knows that he can never have too many.
A proper shoe horn is essential to protecting the back of shoes while putting them on. Not only does a shoe horn facilitate slipping on the shoe, but it keeps the heel of your foot from collapsing the back. On most shoes, this is the first area to damage (and the most preventable).
If you travel frequently, consider our Travel Shoehorn, which is pocket-sized and perfect for slipping your shoes back on after clearing airport security. Because of how essential the availability of shoe horns are, we recommend having one at close reach everywhere - your briefcase, luggage, closet, and office.
