Boots make a big difference. My Alpina Alaska are by far warmer than my other boots.

Sometimes cold can be caused by moisture. I have sweaty feet that turn to cold feet if I stop moving. I use a wicking liner and thin socks. All my boots have a waterproof/breathable liner of some sort (Goretex, Alpintex, etc...) so I try to get as much moisture as I can to the membrane. Also all my boots are real leather. Some of the pleather boots cause my feet to swamp up and turn to ice.

I've also had cold feet in plastic shell boots even with thick liners. The issue there is lack of motion and circulation or blood constriction, I believe.
