Is there an easier way to get in and out of those dress shoes or high heels without hurting your back or crushing the back of your shoes? Would you like to escape those types of shoe episodes? Then, you may be interested in the Shoedini.
It promises to help you slip in and out of your shoes with ease. Could it toe-the-line in our As Seen on TV Test?
For some folks, it's pretty easy to sit down and use a shoe horn. For others they don't want to wrinkle their clothes or it hurts their backs even more to be sitting and trying to use a small shoe horn, and that's where the Shoedini comes in.
The interesting thing about the Shoedini it has this patented grip clip that slips between the inside of your shoe and the outside that allows you to slip it on and off easier, so says the manufacturer.
The Shoedini also telescopes. You unscrew it a little bit and it telescopes as long as three feet. Now, once you have the length that you're comfortable with, you just turn it back to lock it.
I am standing up to see if I can slip my shoe on easily without having to bend over. I just put my foot inside my loafer, slip the Shoedini in their and, voila I didn't have to bend over at all.
How about taking the shoe off? You just slip it in and it pops right out. I'm right handed. Would it help putting on my left shoe? I slip my foot in, slide the Shoedini in, and just like that, pops right out.
Now, the Shoedini claims to work on shoes that are already laced up. Where was the thing when I was a kid? We have a dress shoe that's laced up, you just slip the Shoedini in the back and, sure enough, I can pop it on. Let's see if I can get it off as easily as I got it on. Not as easy, but I was able to do it.
I think the Shoedini is actually a pretty good product, especially if you're someone who has trouble with your back or bending over. I can imagine a lot of seniors would enjoy a product like this, and this would be quite handy. So, my feeling about the Shoedini is this, if this shoe fits, wear it, and we'll give it the thumbs up.
I paid $10 for my Shoedini at Walgreen's. You can also find them on the internet.
Coming up next week, it's that time of year to start washing away that outdoor winter grime, and a power washer can be expensive.
