Just download the free Classic Match Foosball app, sync the dock via Bluetooth and get ready for kickoff with up to four players.

See Concept Screen C Glasses, $65
Even those with 20/20 vision know that staring at a screen all day can cause significant eye strain. That's why French company See Concept created a line of glasses with noncorrective lenses that filter out 40 percent of the blue light emitted by LED screens to help protect your eyes and even help you sleep better at night. Available in an array of frame shapes and colors, they're also a sharp sartorial statement.

Time Hi Top Leather Slipper, $150
These high tops might look like regular sneakers, but in fact, they're actually super-comfy slippers. Each pair features flexible insoles made from the same material used in yoga mats and is lined in cozy (and moisture-wicking) wool. Stretch laces make them easy to slip on and off, and the leather molds to your feet as you wear them. They're even sturdy enough to be worn out of the house—just in case you can't bring yourself to put your regular shoes back on.
