Back-to-school season is upon us, though it's likely to be happening from home for most people. From the ultimate pencil case to work from home slippers, our Homecoming: Preparing for a Back-to-School at Home hub is a virtual class in new-age school essentials.

Schools have reopened and universities are looking for new ways to keep the education rolling. But, looking at the state of things right now, we’re assuming that things aren’t going to go back to normal for a fairly long time. That said, we're looking to make the most of the home-schooling situation with the best slippers.

Have you, like us, always wished you could wear slippers to work or school? If so, this is your term. You may never get the chance to learn while wearing slippers again, so listen up. We’ve scoured the net and rounded up the most comfortable, brain power-enhancing slippers around. We know that when you’re working from home, even the smallest discomfort can distract you, so from Birkenstock to Gucci, these slippers will take care of business from the ground up.

Check out our selections of the best house shoes below.
