slip your shoes on easily with duncan shotton‘s latest quirky and inventive solution to brighten up the everyday. the british designer brings together two otherwise unlikely topics — comic book heroes and shoes — in the creation of the ‘shoeperhero’ shoehorn.

 

a fluffy cloud base holds the little man his long cape in an upright, easy to reach position. when placed on the ground, ‘shoeperhero’ appears to have burst out from a dust cloud, jetting into the air to rescue his next maiden in distress. the cloud is made from white ‘dolomite’ and has a glossy finish that makes it easy to clean, and three rubber feet on the bottom ensure it won’t damage wooden or tiled floors. two outfit variations mimic the quality of each character: ‘red’, with a blue body, yellow belt and badge that surround, red badge, pants and boots; and black, with a grey body, yellow belt and badge, black badge that surround, pants and boots. ‘shoeperhero’ saves the day from the dull and ugly design of most shoehorns today.
