The Shoe Boot Valet is the only device specifically designed to pull on and take off footwear and requires little to no bending or reaching. Don’t take our word for it; find something that even comes close to providing this service. It is the only device with a gripping mechanism that allows you to do this task sitting or standing. The SBV takes little to no grip strength because the cam closes on the heel of the footwear and when lifted; the harder you pull, the tighter it grabs. All you have to be able to do is cup your hand under the handle to lift the shoe or boot and engage the gripping mechanism.
