Top 10 Best Handheld Shoehorns in 2020 Reviews

Do you suffer from back aches whenever you crouch or bend to put on your shoes? If so, it’s high time you got yourself a shoehorn.

Some might call it a little invention. Others just don’t see its purpose when they can just bend over and get things done. However, a shoehorn’s real value can only be known by someone who has suffered from hip pain, sciatica, arthritis, and back pain.

Shoehorns are also of great help to the senior and expectant moms.

Besides helping people with mobility problems, a shoe horn also helps in maintaining your shoes’ shape! In fact, if you don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on your children’s shoes, get them this. It’ll help maintain each shoe’s stiffness.

What Makes a Good Shoehorn?

First, do know that shoehorns come in different construction materials including steel, wood, and plastic. While steel is more durable and flashy, its shoehorns tend to be a bit expensive. Wooden and plastic shoehorns, on the other hand, are affordable. On the downside, they may bend easily if abused.

Secondly, take into account the size of the handle. They come in all sizes ranging from 10’’ to over 30’’. On this note, you may consider going for a telescopic unit. These extend easily and can be used while sitting or standing.

With that, let’s see who the best performers in this niche are.
