I feel the cold massively and work in and old building. I’m currently wearing m and s heat tech fleece thermal top thermal tights knitted woolen dress Hobbs knitted long coatigan over the knee leather boots sat near a radiator and have a hot water bottle. But no matter what my feet hurt and feel frozen they always do yesterday I had different boots on and thermal socks instead same problem. I’ve ordered some thermal insoles but are there any other suggestions that would help. Every year I freeze because of my feet

Sheepskin inserts for boots.
Cashmere socks.
You can get plug in heated cosy foot warmers!

Ugg’s look horrific, but they are the only things that keep my feet warm!!
If your office allows them, I’d wear them tbh

Uggs would be better than smart leather boots, along with merino socks. If the cold strikes up from the floor, having your feet on a folded over towel/mat (or the foam tiles you get for kids to play on are great) will help. You could put a hot water bottle in the towel, or you can get plug in heat pads to help put heat into your feet

Are you allowed to plug things in at work? If you can, I'd recommend a heated floor mat. I'm WFH in an old cottage, where there is carpet, but it's on stone floors. It used to suck all the heat out of my feet, but the mat has been life hanging.
