This funny piece of plastic with the heart-shaped handle claims to be a
boot stand shaper thing. Most boot shapers I've seen are made out of hunks of plastic or wood that fill the entire shaft of the boot. Or they are inflatable, which just takes too much work. And while this skinny piece of plastic doesn't fill the whole inside of your boot, who cares? That's what legs are for. In addition, the dollar store version boasts hook-like
things on the side for holding deodorizing satchels. Will this simple piece of plastic work?
Heart-shaped handle plastic thingy, meet my boots, languishing on the floor as they can't stand up by themselves.
Yes, successs! Cost of regular boot shapers: $10 to $50 depending on type and materials. Dollar store version: $1.50. The Japanese dollar store saves the day again!
