I know I should but I don't
Probably after many wears, someone can put on his shoes without a shoe horn but since I started using shoetrees, I find it almost impossible to wear my lace-ups without a shoe horn.
I mostly use one because heel slips in better and it reduces breakdown of the heel. However, I mainly use it because I have an antique silver and ivory one I got from my grandfather.
With all my quality dress shoes, yes.
Yes, and I always carry a pocket abbeyhorn in my bag.....
Loafers: yes. Laced: no.
IMO, if you have to use shoehorn with laced shoes, your shoes are too small.
That is a whole new level!!
Here is some shoe horn p0rn! Hermes anyone?
i hope you didn't pay more than 5 bucks for that, without the logo it looks like some cheap plastic item you can pick up at the dollar store. fools and their money...
Tiffany had a silver one I used to go goo goo gaa ga over. Decided a polished metal one was just as good and 4 bills cheaper. I keep it in the car.
How often do you change your shoes in the car?
For my better shoes, yes. Always.
I've seen these before in Japan, kinda clever: Shoehorn stands.
Do you have any bespoke laced shoes? I have two pairs that fit perfectly and a couple of other pairs of RTW that fit very well but I could not get any of them on without a shoehorn. I use a shoehorn on all of my shoes.
None of my shoes are bespoke, but I am fortunate enough to be able to find several lasts that fit me perfectly. With most laces open, I can put my foot in with barely any pressure on the back of the shoes.
