Remember when Cam’ron hauled some bulky insults at Jay-Z for “rockin’ open-toed sandals with jeans”? Well, let’s just say
Genevieve Ascencio, spokeswoman for Frye (manufacturer of macho Western wear) commented that the perception of a man in sandals is changing.
“It’s not your typical ‘guy in black socks on the beach’ look. It’s a lot cooler now, and people who have a lot of street cred are validating the trend.”
Citing Def Jam prez Jay-Z, who boldly rocked flip-flops while frolicking on the beach with Beyonce, Ascencio added: “If it’s good enough for Jay-Z, it’s good enough for every man.”
