    Are they swollen, good pulses? any discoloration? could be venous or arterial insufficiency. usually with arterial insufficiency, a person will feel burning or aching after activity, not at night as far as I know. with venous insuffiency, he would have swollen legs/edema, maybe brownish, shiny skin, usually not as much pain. does he have diabetes, maybe it's neuropathy? he should see his doc and get it checked out.
