    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.

    Loafers: yes. Laced: no.

    IMO, if you have to use shoehorn with laced shoes, your shoes are too small.

    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.

    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.
