The Modern Man’s House Shoes

The Modern Man’s House Shoes

An essential part of your WFH uniform

Birkenstock men's house shoes

When you’re not planning on going anywhere, the process of getting dressed is somewhat disrupted. Your clothing adapts and you don't really need any footwear. But padding around the house barefoot or wearing through your favorite socks isn't the answer. No, it's high time you treat yourself to some house shoes. But we're not talking about stuffy slippers.

The new house shoe is a slip-on that complements your easygoing at-home look with its high level of comfort, along with its open styling. They're cool and cooling. They're easily kicked off when you want to relax, but they're handsome and sturdy enough to hold up to daily use or (let's be honest here) take a WFH fit pic. Slip-ons and slides are the hero we need these days. When the future is uncertain and your motivation wanes, slide your foot into one of these and, at least, you feel a bit more finished. Those little things seem to make the biggest difference these days.

If you wear your house shoes outdoors (even to get the mail), then you need to disinfect the bottoms before walking back inside. Better safe than sorry, we say.
