Do the text of internal links count towards keyword density?

If I have a page full of internal links--shoes-startingwiththelettera.html, shoes-startingwiththeletterb.html.... shoes-startingwiththeletterz.html, will I get penalized for the term shoes since I mention it 26 times on a page, or will it be irrelevant since it's mentioned not in the anchor text, but the url? For SEO purposes, would it be better for me to have my urls be /a.html, b.html,c.html or the ones with the word shoes in it, or does it not matter?

I would target more of the brand names & less of the word shoe.

I look more at the fit & finish than a brand name.

I think he means "shoe" as the brand name.

If ecommerce (natch) and part of URL hierarchy and no other bad news in keywords, etc. then probably no harm... but don't expect it to be SEO either.
