Shoe Horn


A shoehorn (sometimes called a shoespoon) is a tool that allows the user to put on a shoe more easily. 
Originally, shoe horns were made from animal horns and some made from bulls' horns are still available for purchase. Today plastic and metal are most often used.
Shoehorns have been used for advertising and many people collect them.

So Bill has started using a shoehorn lately.  I remember my grandfather using one and I'm having a hard time wrapping my mind around shoehorns being 'cool' for anyone under the age of 60 to use. 
I'm sure most of my shoe's backs [or the shoe's counter to be accurate with shoe terms...] would have been much happier if I had adopted the use of a shoehorn (or spoon) instead of jamming my foot in...or even untying them first could be a nice thing to do.  Instead my shoes eventually do an accordion look alike and sometimes- causes blisters on my heels. 
- But hey!  Better than looking old and uncool by using a shoe horn!  (although I think a shoehorn collection would be ultra cool.)
