Sock and a Shoe, Sock and a Shoe or
Sock, Sock then Shoe, Shoe?
Personally I'm a Sock and a Shoe (repeat) kinda guy. Less effort having to lift each leg only once.

[first check to see whether he is in the right forum. Oh well]
Left sock, right. Left shoe, right. Tie right shoe, tie left.

I am a sock-sock person (socks are in the bedroom, shoes by the door) this debate was played out in an episode of All in the Family between Mike and Archie. Mike reasoned that if a fire broke out in the house and forced them to evacuate after having completed only half their respective foot dressing rituals, Mike could hop around in the snow and keep his feet dry, while Archie would be plodding about in sodden socks.

Sounds like this would get better play over in IMHO. Off it goes.

You don't wear pantyhose, do you?

Left sock/stocking, right sock/stocking, left shoe, right shoe, tie left (if applicable), tie right (if applicable)

Shoe, shoe, sock, sock. That way if there's a fire half way through the process I have two shoes on, I can do without the socks! :D

Sock, sock, sock, sock, shoe, shoe. Why four socks? Because I invaritably find that my socks don't match the first time around, or have a hole in them, so I have to put on another pair.

Actually mine is briefs, sock, sock, shirt, pants, belt, shoe, shoe.

In all seriousness, that's my order every work morning as well (on weekends the shoes and socks don't come out until I'm going somewhere). I always found it easiler to put the socks on before the pants myself. Of course if there's a fire half way through the process I'm screwed!

Left sock, right sock, left shoe, right shoe.

Does anybody remember this little gem (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?threadid=17093)?

True, but then Archie countered by bringing up a more likely scenario:
If you go sock-shoe-sock-shoe, and you don't discover until you're about to put on the second sock that the second sock has a hole in it, you have to take off your shoe to remove the first sock and replace it with a new matching pair. If you go sock-sock-shoe-shoe, it will be much easier to remove the first sock if you discover a hole in the second.
Of course, you could get around this problem by getting a whole bunch of the same kind of socks, so that you could just discard the one with a hole in it and pick out an identical one from the sock-heap. But Mike didn't bring up this objection.

I seldom wear sox actually. Left shoe, right shoe, except when it's right shoe, left shoe. Depends on which way they are facing, I think.

<<Reveling in new level of banality>>
Personally, I go sock-sock0shoe-shoe. However, there is a very important preliminary step that's been neglected. That is to put your hand inside each sock and pull out any fluff balls that collected during the last wash, else deal with what feels like a rock in your shoe all day. Lest we forget.

Sock, whine about pulled hamstring, other sock, whine about achy back, shoe, shoe, lose balance and fall due to 4.5 " platforms. Ahh, what I suffer for fashion. :rolleyes:
06-09-2000, 03:57 PM
Goodness, tiggeril, what kind of socks do you wear?
06-09-2000, 04:24 PM
I usually do it sock-sock-shoe-shoe, but for some reason the other morning, I looked down and discovered I had sock-shoed. I was like looking down and discovering I had put my bra on outside my clothes. I just don't know how it happened.

I hate socks!
You know how people get chills and all freaked out when someone runs their hands down a chaulk board? Well, all I have to do to get chills is think of socks.
Anyway, sock-shoe-sock-shoe. It just is easier for me if I only have to see one sock at a time. Really, I am crazy.

Explanation: I'm not quite sure how I got into this habit, but I always wear two pairs of socks (except with sneakers). Since these are more dress socks than tubes, I can fit two pair on easy...maybe I even buy my shoes based on how they fit with two pairs (never really thought about it).
Though they need laundering twice as often, they make things quite comfortable (especially if the shoe is starting to wear down or you do a lot of walking), plus my wife loves my soft, soft feet. :)

When I wear socks at all: glasses, panties, bra, sock, sock, pants <or jeans, or shorts, depending on what I'm doing that day>, do hair, pet kitty, pet puppy, shirt, shoes when it's time to leave.
What's the big deal about matching socks? Simple. Wash my socks separate from everyone else's <only way I get them back!>, dry, match pairs, fold, put in drawer as a set, ready to go.
Which is not to say my socks don't occasionally mysteriously disappear from my drawer.<looking suspiciously at daughter, who looks back with her best innocent look> :eek:

Tracer: I'm really short, so all socks I buy are really long on me, so putting them on requires more stretching than I'm used to on a daily basis. The fact that I usually wear heels or platforms doesn't really help, either ;)

Count me as a sock shoe repeat.
Prefer no socks at all, but that wasn't really an option in the original question.

Sock x 2, shoe x 2. Mostly 'cos there's a lot of time between the two activities. Wander around, get breakfast, talk with the wife & kid, then realize I gotta get going.
I *do* have pants and a shirt on before I exit the bedroom, though. :)
