With previous long free standing shoehorn designs the base has a strong presence and they are large in volume as well, making their presence at the entrance to the home too strong. In terms of functionality, we think that the base should be as compact as possible while satisfying its function as a shoehorn. In addition, if the shoehorn is at an angle when leaning against the base it takes up more space than necessary in the entrance. With this shoehorn, by investigating how to limit the gap between the shoehorn and base as much as possible, we have made it stand almost vertically, while allowing the shoehorn to be inserted and removed smoothly.
