ALWAYS use a Shoehorn
There are few things that spoil the look of a good pair of shoes like the worn, collapsed heel counter that results when a men just jams his feet into a pair of shoes. Well, it can be easily prevented. When slipping on a pair of shoes for the day, always, always, always use a shoehorn.
A shoehorn is a simple tool that allows a gentleman to easily put on his shoes without damaging the heel counter. Yes, it may seem a bit inconvenient at first. But, outfit every corner of your life—from briefcase to office, closet to study, and even that downstairs couch—with this tool and its use will soon be second nature. Your shoes will thank you.
In fact, there is never really a case where a shoehorn should not be used (with the singular exception of boots, which do not generally require one). If you do happen to find yourself without a shoehorn, or perhaps you forgot to pack one in your suitcase, a drivers license, room key, credit card, or even folded paper can be used in lieu.
As advocates for always having a shoehorn around, it is not surprising that we here at the Hanger Project carry one of the widest selections of shoehorns on the internet. Click here to view our assortment.
