Normal: We loose heat through our extremities (hands, and feet) and our ears and nose. That is why in winter time you have to keep these parts more covered than the rest. So if you are not feeling any burning sensation in your feet and they just feel hot and by keeping them out you feel better, I do not believe there is anything wrong. However, go see a podiatrist or let your doctor know.

A topical cream: Epsom salt soaks in luke- warm water before you go to bed at night, can really help sooth your feet. Applying a foot cream with peppermint or menthol in it can also cool your feet down. Biofreeze has a nice cooling effect as well.
