The other, however, depends on usage, for me anyway. If I'm telling someone to put them on, I say, "Put on your socks and shoes," I suppose because that's the order in which you must put them on. Otherwise, it's the other way around, as in "Put away your shoes and socks." Molly dickmeye[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
