Bernie Madoff -- Selling His Soles

10/28/2010 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The feds ain't done with Bernie Madoff just yet -- in fact, Uncle Sam is about to auction off a bunch of the dude's expensive stuff ... starting with the Ponzi schemer's ridiculous shoe collection.

The auction -- administered by the U.S. Marshals Service to benefit Madoff's victims -- is scheduled to kick off November 13th in New York ... and features over 400 pieces of Bernie's personal property, jewelry, and antiques.

72-year-old Madoff -- the mega-investor who defrauded his clients of nearly $65 billion in the biggest Ponzi scheme ever -- just finished his first year behind bars ... which means he's got 149 left to go.

You may not want to walk in those shoes after all.

Billions of loafers with appropriate ivy league tassles. He was nicely dressed. Now, burn them all. They are bad luck. I am certain the investors won't care. They each would get a penny if they sold.
