Socks and shoes: What's the correct way?

OK, I just walked into work. Arrived in sneakers and sweat socks since it's still a little bit icy out there. As I was changing into my dress socks and Bostonians, I flashed back on an "All of the Family" episode where Archie and Mike (AKA "Meathead") were debating whether the correct way to put on socks and shoes was a sock and a sock and a shoe and a shoe (Archie's way), or a sock and a shoe and a sock and a shoe (Mike's way).

Archie's reasoning: If there's a fire in the house, with two socks on, you could run outside and be even.

Mike's reasoning: What if it's snowing outside? Archie's way, his feet would get wet. Mike's way, he could hop around on one foot and stay dry.

Personally, I'm a sock and a shoe, sock and a shoe guy. (You're all learning WAYYYY too much about me through this blog!)

What about you: Sock and sock, shoe and shoe or sock and shoe, sock and shoe? Let me (and all the blog readers out there) know.

UPDATE: 1:03 p.m.: I've just polished off a Dr. Pepper and started in on my gourmet liverwurst sandwich. And still no responses. Maybe I was a bit too specific with socks and shoes. They can be sneakers , too. Or boots. I'd say sandals, but I don't know anyone who wears socks with sandals. (I'm sure there's someone out there though). The latter could also be said for high heels. Snow shoes present their own dilemma, because you have a boot in between the snow shoe and the sock. C'mon, guys and gals, don't make me soliloquize all day long by myself (that never leads to any good).

Well, I feel sorry for you - three years and no responses...

I am a sock, sock, shoe, shoe guy.

The primary reason for this is because I usually put the socks on before the pants, and it is hard to put the pants on after the shoes (though I do that on occasion).

It is also because I run around the place in the morning in my undershirt and shorts and socks for about 30 minutes before I get dressed the rest of the way.

So there you go!
