The first traces of the origin of the shoehorn date back to the 15th century, in the Victorian era, to help people put on shoes more easily. In the fashion of the time, the shoes were very narrow and these new tools used daily by the aristocrats. In fact, the rich can afford made-to-measure shoes and therefore need accessories such as the shoehorn, originally carved on bone or horn. In the sixteenth century thanks to the fashion of tight-fitting shoes, the shoehorn becomes an essential accessory for the Dandy; made with manufacturing structures of different materials (from silver to brass, from whalebone to ivory, from wood to tortoise) in order to make a sturdy shoe fit for an essential kit.
