Shoehorns were originally made from animal hoofs, and some made from bulls' hoofs are probably still available for purchase if you can find them. For myself, I like oxhorn, which is exactly the same keratin only taken from the head instead of the foot. Either is smooth, sturdy, natural and great looking.
Once a man gets past thirty and can no longer touch the floor with his knees straight without thinking about it, he will benefit from a long handled shoe horn like the one in the photo. They are of course a bit awkward for travel, and there I like my Traveller Brush Kit.
If only I hadn't put it where I couldn't get it.
