Government sells spoils of Madoff's lavish life - Yahoo! News: "Valued at $75 to $110, the lot with the slippers also included Ruth Madoff's monogrammed shirt. A young man paid $6,000 for all of it, saying he'll never be able to wear the slippers because his shoe size is 13; Madoff wore a size 8. He declined to give his name.
The boxers came with assorted menswear and went for $650, besting a pre-sale estimate of $380 to $540.
Besides bulls and fine watches, Madoff loved shoes. He owned about 250 pairs, many never worn — made in Italy, France, Belgium and England.
Ten pairs of Madoff's used designer shoes sold for $900, against a minimum of $250.
The disgraced 72-year-old convict is behind bars for life in a North Carolina prison, and his wife was ordered to leave their homes."
