Our Analysis

In one review, the telescoping handle on the ShoeDini repeatedly collapses and the clip breaks after only four uses. Another big hitch revealed in testing: once you get one shoe on successfully, you may have to balance or teeter on one foot while putting on the other shoe. Thus it may not be very helpful for the elderly or people with disabilities, even though it's marketed to this demographic.

The review at WalletPop.com recommends purchasing the ShoeDini from a local store; according to the author, shipping and handling costs can more than double the price if the product is bought by phone or from the official website.  

We found the most useful review of the ShoeDini at WalletPop.com, where its rating is based on tests by three people (including a woman with multiple sclerosis) using a variety of shoes. We also found several hands-on tests conducted by news stations. At KIDK (Idaho Falls, Idaho), seven employees give ShoeDini a try with varying results. The tests at KPLC (Lake Charles, La.) reveal major issues with durability, while a reporter for KCBD (Lubbock, Texas) says the ShoeDini works wonders. Despite all this mixed feedback, keep in mind that most of these tests involved healthy, limber people who don't really need the ShoeDini. The one report we found from a disabled user says the ShoeDini isn't helpful at all.
