Recently saw that classic All in the Family scene again, where Archie berates Meathead for putting on his shoes & socks in the order: Sock-shoe, sock-shoe.

That got me thinking, in what order do you put on your shoes & socks? I asked a bunch of friends/family, and out of 17 people, all of them do sock-sock, shoe-shoe. (Same goes for me)

They go on sock-sock, shoe-shoe, but come off shoe-sock, shoe-sock.

I do a sock and a sock then a shoe and a shoe in case there is a fire and I have to run outside, that way I will not be in my bare feet.

I usually do shoe then sock, but for some reason that doesn't work out...

On the days I wear shoes and socks, the socks are on well before I put on the shoes.

I like the days when I get to wear neither shoes or socks, as that means it was a day not involving going to work or the shops.

I voted sock, sock, shoe, shoe.

In reality, I'm sock, sock, pants, shoe, shoe.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood?
