In brief: No

Anxiety by itself would not cause purple feet.
Such discoloration may be related to venous stasis ( blood pooling in the lower limbs) and should be discussed with a primary care physician. It is understandable that a person might have anxiety with such a condition and that should also be discussed with the doctor.

In brief: Not usually

Anxiety does not cause purple feet per se.
You may consider seing your doctor to make sure you do not have a circulatory problem or any other cinditions that could be causing your problem.
