Why You Need to Use a Shoehorn

The Hilarious History and Benefits of Sneakerspoon's Shoehorn
Let's face it, putting on shoes can be a pain in the, well, foot. Whether you're struggling to fit your toes into a tight pair of sneakers or wrangling with a new pair of shoes that won't slip on easily, the struggle is real. But fear not, my friends. For there is a tool that can make the shoe-putting-on process a breeze: the humble shoehorn.

Why on earth do I need a shoehorn?

Now, you might be thinking, "Why on earth do I need to use a shoehorn?" I've been putting on shoes without one for years!" And sure, you can certainly continue to struggle and curse your way through the shoe-putting-on process, but why make things harder on yourself than they need to be? Using a shoe horn has a ton of benefits that you might not even be aware of. Allow me to explain.

First of all, let's talk about the history of the shoehorn. According to my extensive (read: five minutes of Googling) research, shoehorns have been around since at least the 15th century. Back then, they were typically made of wood or animal horn and were used to help people slide their feet into tight-fitting leather boots. It wasn't until the 20th century that plastic shoehorns became more widely available, making the tool accessible to the masses.

So why did people even bother with shoehorns in the first place?

Well, for one thing, using a shoe horn helps to preserve the shape of your shoes. When you force your foot into a shoe without a shoehorn, you're essentially crushing the back of the shoe and causing unnecessary wear and tear. By using a shoehorn, you can gently guide your foot into the shoe without damaging the structure of the shoe itself.

But that's not all! Using a shoehorn can also prevent you from damaging your socks or stockings. If you've ever tried to shove your foot into a tight shoe and ended up snagging your sock or creating a run in your stockings, you know how frustrating it can be. A shoehorn can help you avoid this problem entirely.

And let's not forget..

about the sheer convenience of using a shoehorn. With the right technique (which we'll get to in a moment). You can slip your shoes on in a matter of seconds rather than struggling and grunting for minutes on end. Plus, if you're someone who values the condition of your shoes (and let's be real, who doesn't?). Using a shoe horn is a no-brainer.

Now, you might be wondering why I'm specifically talking about Sneakerspoon's shoehorn. Well, let me tell you: this thing is a game-changer. The folks at Sneakerspoon took the traditional shoehorn and added a unique twist: the shoehorn is made from the tail of their Sneaker Shaper. This tail is specifically designed to help preserve the shape of your sneakers when you're not wearing them, but Sneakerspoon realized that it could also double as a pretty amazing shoehorn.


Sneakerspoon's shoehorn is sturdy and flexible, making it easy to use no matter what kind of shoe you're putting on. You can trust that it won't damage the structure of your shoes. Plus, because it's so unique-looking, it's bound to become a conversation starter. Who knew this could be a fashion statement?
