When it comes to the Birkenstock slip-ons, folks often associate the comfortable footwear with "drab." Typically described as "Jesus" sandals, these leathery shoes have a reputation for showing up on the soles of bohemian-styled hippies or paired with tube socks on touristy dads. But the days of that boring shoe are totally behind us, as Opening Ceremony has officially (and exclusively) introduced glitter Birkenstocks to the world ... and no one is quite sure how to process it.
