The  solution is simple.  Just get about two dozen identical socks.   
Then, you can mix and match.  I just try to match them up so I'm  putting 
on two that have a similar amount of wear.   ;-)

That worked for my husband.  Men's dress socks are nicely  uniform.  I tried 
it for myself, and discovered that not only were the  supposedly identical 
socks not quite identical, the things weren't from the same  dye lot and faded 
differently.  It's more trouble to get the navy socks  that have faded lighter 
than the rest of them sorted out than it would be  to match up socks that 
weren't made to the same pattern.  I have  six pairs of very similar navy socks 
that are at least four different  shades of navy.  Dratsab!
