I'm an expert. Thank goodness you found me!
You need a pair of winter cycling shoes that are bigger then your summer pair. On your feet wear one pair of lightweight synthetic "liner" socks. Then over those wear a medium weight pair of wool/blend socks (SmartWool work the best for me). The first layer will allow your feet to breathe and move and rub against the wool socks without blistering. Basically, with those two socks on, find shoes that fit over that combination.
Then you need some neoprene shoe covers to go over that to block the wind and cold.
As far as the Smartwool socks go, the Cycling Light is a good sock, but I use the Hiking Light Crew, even though they are not available in white, like the Cycling Light.
