​Long-Handled Shoe Horns are Awesome

Posted on

If you have never used a long-handled shoe horn before, you are missing out on a really easy and comfortable way to put on your shoes. Of course, if you are going to go ahead and buy a long-handled shoe horn from The Walking Cane Store, you may as well just go ahead and get the best.

We will admit that shoe horns are something many of you may never have heard about, or something you think only your grandparents own. But this is just not the case. Read on and we will fill you in on everything you need to know about shoe horns.

How They Work

A shoe horn is partially inserted into the shoe at the heel. When this occurs, it provides a smooth surface in which your foot slides in your shoes without a problem. A shoe horn takes the place of your finger, which is a really painful and inefficient way to slide your shoes over the heels. In short, shoe horns make putting on your shoes a much simpler task.

The added benefit of a long-handled shoe horn is that you don't have to bend over or otherwise contort your body to put on your shoes. You can actually sit up rather straight and get your shoes on. Long-handled shoe horns are ideal for people who:

  • Have a disability
  • Are seniors
  • Have a difficult time bending over
  • Suffer a back injury
  • Are pregnant

Long-handled shoe horns are really great for people who have recently had surgury or have had hip or knee replacements.

Saves Shoes

Have you ever seen a pair of dress shoes or leather shoes with frayed and torn heels? This is a sign of somebody who has been forcing their heels into their shoes. The use of a shoe horn eliminates frayed and torn heels so your dress shoes look better and last longer.

Saves Fingers

We are willing to bet that at some point everybody has suffered a crushed finger trying to put on a pair of shoes. There are some who may have even lost skin off a finger trying to pull it out of the heel of a shoe.

Many to Choose From

There are many styles of shoe horns made from a variety of materials. You can get metal shoe horns, wooden shoe horns and even shoe horns made from horns, if you into that sort of thing.

You can get all sorts of styles of shoe horns including duck-handled shoe horns, black lab-handled shoe horns and black stallion-handled shoe horns. You can even get a long-handled shoe horn that also can be used as a back scratcher. You can put your shoes on effortlessly and then scratch those hard-to-reach places.

Shoe horns are works of art. In fact, they look so good that you can proudly display yours in on the wall should you choose to do so.

If you do have grandparents who use shoe horns, they are very smart people. Perhaps it’s time you order a long-handled shoe horn from The Walking Cane Store and stop struggling to put your shoes on every morning.
