Feet and hands constantly icy but it's my feet that really annoy me.
I have read this thread
and several others, which gave me some great ideas, but wanting to see if there is any additional ideas for me.
Male, 6 foot, 160 lbs, mid 50s in age. No history of diabetes in family ever. Yes, I may have Raynauds, but not sure what to do about it other than try and find ways to keep my feet and hands warm.

I live in a desert environment but dread winters. Sit at a desk all day at work with painfully icy feet, but even at home where I can move a little more, feet are constantly frozen (and hands, but I want to focus on feet). At work, I have a little space heater blowing on my feet but they are still cold! Plus the heater makes the rest of me hot. Can't exactly wear down slippers at work or heavy ugly winter boots. I'm thinking I need some freakin HOT socks or something.
Does anyone have any advice on socks? (therapeutic is best--alpaca, merino wool, angora, mohair, anything else that is HOT) but not too thick as I have to wear normal shoes at work. I'm not big on the gel packs as that would get too expensive for every day use.
Any other advice on anything is appreciated.
