I've been looking for an easier way to polish my shoes. Currently I wear my shoe and polish while it's on, this however becomes difficult as my foot can't stay in place.

I was looking at a shoe box with a step and thought it may be useful, but I also heard of a shoe butler which won't even require me wearing the shoe. I can imagine though that the butler will swing back and forth. I'm not sure which is easier to care for shoes?

You dont NEED to wear your shoes in order to polish them

I once tried polishing my shoes while wearing them. Seemed like a good idea at the time. Of course I was 8 years old then.

Obviously you dont NEED to wear your shoes. But after actually watching the pros shine shoes, I think it's better to have both hands FREE to do the job. It's quicker, but the shoe can't stay in place unless you have something to help with that.
