Bruise on the top of the feet, wearing soft strap sandals, reddish pinpoints around ankle. What could this be?

I have two unexplained bruises on the top of my feet . I noticed them when i got home for work and took off my sandals. the bruise on each foot is in exactly the same area, under the strap of my sandal. I have been wearing the sandals for a few months and they are soft and not tight. I also noticed some reddish pinpoints around the inside of my ankle.
