Go with the Flow.: Feet turning black from the ankle down can be from either an environmental issue or a vascular issue. The environmental issue includes staining of the skin from either socks or shoes. More than likely it is due to stasis dermatitis, as Dr. Mora mentioned. The other vascular problem is from tissue death from lack of blood flow. If this was the case, the pain would be severe. The feet would be cold.
