33 best men’s slippers in 2021: WFH Essentials from Birkenstock, Uniqlo, LLBean and more
In 2021, slippers are still (again!) Doing extra work. The best slippers for men are therefore more important than ever. It goes without saying that they are an essential part of the WFH. But they’ll also protect your feet from the rude awakening that comes with getting out of bed on icy floors. They’ll protect your toes every time you step out onto the patio to pick up your 8th package delivery of the week. And they’ll help you feel like an adult – you know, someone who files their own taxes and meets various important deadlines – no matter what stage of your groggy teenage years working from home has brought you back.
You see, well over a year after the start of this uncertain era, we have arrived at a few unassailable truths:
- Zoom meetings: even less productive and more exhausting than the face-to-face version.
- Never underestimate the power of a good chair.
- No matter how comfortable your daily uniform is, it is oddly difficult to concentrate at work barefoot.
We are still waiting for science to explain why. But in the meantime, you can fix the problem. With a long, cold winter not too far off the bend, grab a pair of men’s slippers. In fact, given that you’ll be wearing them almost around the clock these days, not just on lazy weekends and after-hours, you might want to jump in for a some good pairs. That’s right: a slipper rotation.
How much depends on you. Ditto for styles, as there is a wide variety of wild style supports. Whether you are looking for something classy and refined, or rather a comfortable sleeping bag filled with memory foam for your feet, we have rounded up 33 of the best men’s slippers on the market. This winter, make sure you feel fully dressed and confident no matter how bad this Zoom reunion is.
