I have 2 layers of OSB board over a paving slab floor,don`t have a problem with cold feet or fatigued legs/feet,at work we had ant-fatigue mats,but in a dental lab they are a pain as they get full of dust and crap to quickly,I like Pauls idea,I used to work with a chap who bought those make yourself moccosins and he cut tyre treads to the shape of them for long wearing soles.
welcome to my woodturning world

And it has the added benefit that if you don't like it, you just change shoes.

Blimey didn't realise the topic was that popular!  Got the Axi mats, very pleased.  The floor in out kitchen gets very cold in the winter so SWMBO can also use them when doing the washing up to keep her feet warm  ;D ;D

When I converted the garage into a workshop, I laid 2x1 battens at 16"centres over the concrete floor with doubled-up 4"x1" where the lathe was going, filled all the spaces with 1" thick polystyrene slabs, then laid 8ftx2ft T&G chipboard flooring. Works a treat.
