Everyone might have seen a curved instrument used for easing one’s heel into a shoe (especially while purchasing a shoe). Many of us would be wondering the name of this wonderful instrument. Well, that’s shoehorn. Originally, shoehorns were made from animal horns and hence got this name.
Also, as a verb shoehorn is used to indicate force into an inadequate space.
