description

Elongated (approx. 8-25 cm), rounded, slightly concave piece of plastic, metal or horn that is held against the inside of a shoe while it is being put on. Because the hollow takes the shape of the heel, it slides easily into the shoe along it without pushing the back flat. Sometimes the shoehorn is provided with a button hook at the other end. [MOT]
