You’re wanting a great looking wardrobe accessory or a highly functional dressing aid, our range of high quality, solid brass and wood shoehorns has both needs covered. The practical design and durable construction of our shoehorns is enhanced by the high quality and beautiful materials used. Choose an elegant, decorative handle top to suit the owner – the horse, the cobra or the lion.
Although no one really knows when or where the shoehorn was first invented, early surviving examples suggest they were in use in England by the late Middle Ages. Records exist showing purchases of shoehorns for the household of Elizabeth I. Many early examples feature inscriptions of their makers’ or owners’ names, and ornate heraldic symbols and decorative engravings.
This shoehorn is great for seniors or anyone with limited flexibility issues. The 63cm, extra long handle will enable them to put on shoes without bending or straining. This generous handle length also makes this shoehorn ideal for putting on calf or knee-high – riding boots for example!
This classic design is suitable for a man or a woman. Powerful, graceful and intelligent, the horse is a symbol of freedom, independence, endurance and courage. This shoehorn design is a beautiful and practical gift idea for a horse racing or equestrian enthusiast, or for someone with the strength and grace of these stunning creatures.
