In brief: Circulation
Purplish skin color, although disturbing in appearance, may not necessarily signify compromise circulation.
If you have pulse present in your feet ( either on the front or the back), chances are your circulation is not that bad. If you do indeed have compromised circulation, looking for and treating the underlying cause would be the mainstay of a successful treatment.
