Best nico Design Extra-Long Shoehorns

Wednesday, 30 October 2019  |  Olivia

William Morris’ classic rule dictates that every object should be either beautiful or useful, and these shoehorns excel in both capacities. Benefitting from nico’s unique handle designs, these traditional tools are ideal for those suffering from back pain or flexibility issues, letting the user slip their shoes on and off with ease and comfort. While some inventions have certainly lost their usefulness over time – the fax machine, VHS tapes and floppy discs, the shoehorn has retained its use throughout the ages.

If you own some particularly treasured footwear, then a shoehorn will prevent damage to the heel as you slip your foot inside. Read on for our guide to nico Design Extra-Long Shoehorns, as well as our favourite picks.

How Do I Use an Extra-Long Shoehorn? 

  1. Remain standing
  2. Position your shoehorn so the scoop is upward and faces your heel
  3. Hold onto the handle and slide your foot down the tool and into your shoe
  4. Remove the shoehorn when your foot is fully in the shoe

What's the History of the Shoehorn? 

One of the first historical mentions of the shoehorn was from the 16th century, when Queen Elizabeth I ordered 18 shoehorns to assist her with her royal footwear. In the past, shoehorns were made from the horns of animals, ivy, shell, silver or bone.

What Are the Shoehorns Made From?

These shoehorns are 70cm long, and made primarily from cellulose acetate. The centrepiece is made from rich, varnished wood, and the head is coated plastic.
