Could blood pooling happen solely in the bottom of the feet and not the rest of the legs? Both my feet ache and are red on the soles when standing.

In brief: Blood pooling

It is not likely that you are getting pooling of the blood only at the bottom of the feet.
Most people note blood pooling, or Venous Insufficiency first in the lower legs and ankles, and, usually not at your age (usually beginning in the late 30's to late 40's). You may be having increased blood flow from a high activity level which has increased your capillary return, thus making them red
