A raid in April on the Pikesville home of a suspected drug trafficker turned up the usual tools of the trade, according to court documents: bundles of cash, some marijuana, seven handguns, a scale and a money counting machine. But agents also seized 98 pairs of men's shoes, according to the document. And authorities are now seeking to keep the footwear - which they value at $48,340, or $493 a pair - alleging that they were bought with drug money. The shoe collection is not described in the document, but the man whose feet they presumably fit is identified as Jerome Castle.

Stories about little kids who flip out in public have always fascinated me, which is why we present another here today. This story begins on a Saturday at Dick's, the mammoth sporting goods store, where I have come to buy a pair of running shoes. The shoes are for the daily exercise walks needed to maintain the sleek, whippetlike physique that is only hinted at in the column picture above. Anyway, I'm trying on a pair of Nikes when here comes a couple trailing their young daughter in the wary manner in which sheriff's deputies escort prisoners into court.

It may be the shoe man's last walk up Harford Road; a slow, afternoon trudge through the heart of Hamilton -- in and out of the doughnut shop, the cleaners, the pizza joint, the video store and the gas station with the simple pitch: "Anybody need shoes today?"He says: "You never know when you might sell a pair of shoes, so I just go right down the line."Edward Angell has gone right down the line to the end of the line.After more than 30 years of pedestrian sojourns from one end of Baltimore to the other -- selling thousands of pairs of shoes andChristmas cards in season -- old age and fragile health will deliver him to a retirement home at the end of this month.

Q. I recently read your column about the young man whose feet were smelling up his sister's house. My son had the same problem, and the remedy I found worked great. I bought a chlorophyll drink at a health-food store. Within 24 hours he was scent-free. A.Thanks for the tip. Others have also reported benefits from chlorophyll. We don't know how it might work, but you don't need a double-blind, placebo-controlled study to tell you if someone's feet still stink. Another reader offered this: "The only solution we found for my husband's smelly feet was for him to have more than one pair of shoes.

Linda Robinson, an interior designer, slips surprises into the domestic environments she and clients put together. A streak of color here, an objet d'art there -- taking a home from predictable to enchanting doesn't demand fireworks.The same goes for Robinson's own sense of style. While she prefers a seasonal uniform made up this time of year of fitted blazers, slacks and pants suits -- Robinson also likes to add a splash with a striking brooch, exquisite shoes or a hat. Many of those accessories, including a spectacular hat by Holly Merritt, have been purchased at Treasure Boxes & Treasures, the Maryland Committee for Children's annual auction of crafts created by participants in the American Craft Council Show.

When Troy Rohrbaugh was a freshman at Johns Hopkins University, he asked the same question he is being asked now: Why are all the shoes in the tree?"And this is what I was told," said Mr. Rohrbaugh, now a senior, . . . Fraternity brothers were always forgetting things, and they'd yell to their roommates to throw them stuff out the window. One time somebody threw down a pair of shoes and it got wrapped around a limb."From then on, any time you wore out a pair of shoes, or your roommate had really smelly feet with a tendency to leave his shoes laying around, they'd end up on the tree."

Walking a mile in a woman's shoes is not as easy as it might seem. Just ask the 50 men who recently removed their sneakers and loafers, slipped on women's shoes - from sequined flip-flops to 3-inch heels and slides - and walked four laps around the Harford Community College track. "I thought the mile was symbolic," said Billy Boniface, president of the Harford County Council, as he completed his first lap wearing a pair of brown shoes with 2-inch heels. But it was all for a good cause.

John Senatore was lining up at the start of the 1996 Boston Marathon when he heard, "Hey buddy, you have a flat tire." He looked down to find the air pocket of one of his Nike Air running shoes deflated. Senatore, a Union Memorial Hospital podiatrist, ran the full 26.2 miles anyway, against his better judgment. "I could barely walk for two weeks afterward," he recalls. Diehard racers know the value of good running shoes, or at least they should. But even if you're a weekend jogger, it's important to know what to look for when buying running shoes, how to decide when it's time for a new pair and the possible consequences (think back pain)

LET ME tell you about the day I didn't strangle my youngest son. Thought about it, mind you, but didn't do it. There are several reasons. In the first place, I'm rather fond of the kid. In the second place, strangling people is against the law. And in the third place, I don't think my hands would fit around his neck. At 16, he's 2 inches taller than I am and outweighs me by a good 20 pounds. I know what you're thinking: "Why, Pitts, of course you didn't strangle your own child. You'd never do such a thing."

They called it a going-out-of-business sale yesterday - and sold plenty of shoes - but Dan Bros. Discount Shoes turned into a gathering of devotees who wanted to take home a piece of Baltimore history. In their size, of course. Starting at 7:30 a.m., they queued up outside the South Baltimore shop, which for more than six decades has outfitted celebrity athletes, politicians and everyday folks. Kweisi Mfume, president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, bought three pairs yesterday.

I WENT TO a sporting goods store with a couple of teen-age boys, one of them mine. The teens regarded this trip as a chance to buy "cool" sweat shirts and other guy stuff. For me this trip wasn't about male bonding, it was about bandaging.I was there to check out the knee braces, ankle braces, to look at any device that could help keep my joints aligned. While I was at it, I planned to scout around for some basketball shoes. I didn't care if the shoes were stylish. I just didn't want the shoes to pinch my feet when I put in my custom-made foot braces.
