A friend and I were walking through the door [at Campbell Apartment] when a bouncer-type employee stopped me and said I couldn’t go in. Why? “We don’t allow athletic shoes,” he said. What I was wearing was a pair of very, very expensive Tod’s shoes that I’d received as a generous, considerate, tasteful 40th birthday present from, well, myself. They were made of suede. They had dozens of little studs along the sides. Maybe those studs reminded the bouncer of cleats or something,...but trust me: no one in his or her right mind would run or jump or row or even perspire in them. They were serious shoes."
