Thank you for the review! We apologize for the delay with your order. As you mentioned, due to COVID, the supply chain has affected a lot of our orders these past few months. For the most part, we no longer include our leather coasters however you certainly should've received a shoehorn with your order. Please reach out to our customer service team and we'd be happy to send you one - email@example.com

Thanks again for your review and feedback, Trevor - it is truly appreciated.
