How do you use a shoe horn?
A shoe horn of shoe spoon like some people also call it makes that you do not have to use your finger.
This means no bending over or sitting down to put your shoes on. Which can be a little harder to do when you get a little older.
Basically, there are two types of shoe horns. Short ones that you use when sitting down and long handled shoe horn for when you put your shoes on standing up.
Although most long handled shoe spoons can be used sitting down also. Most people have to use a finger in the heel part of the shoe to help them get their foot in.
You rest the wide part of the shoehorn in the heel part of the shoe. Then you put your shoe on just as normal but do not remove the shoe horn until your foot is completely in the shoe.
The shoe horn widens the heel part of the shoe and keeps it open so your foot can slide in easier and does not bend the heel part.
Now your foot is in the shoe you remove the shoe horn and you are good to go.
If a long handled shoe horn is the best shoe horn depends on you and how hard it is for you to put your shoes on and if you like to do it standing or sitting down.
I have most of the time my daily shoes at the door and the coat hanger rack is a perfect place to have a long handled shoe horn and used it when I am ready to walk out of the door.
