OP, have you invested in a white noise machine and some ear plugs. It sounds as though there's some things they could do, but also some steps you could take to fix the situation.
We have multiple fans going on but the noise is too loud. I'd have to have something turned up at top voulme to cover the noise and that would defeat the purpose.
I can't wear earplugs because then I'd run the risk of not hearing my son if he woke up. I also can't put earplugs on him.
I understand that he works on the weekends. However, wearing shoes on a hardwood floor at 6:30-7 a.m. is not a necessity. It's not a life altering change for them to wait until they leave to slip shoes on. However, sleep IS a necessity. I don't stay up late, I try to go to bed at a reasonable time but was getting woken up multiple times by them LATE. Then getting woken up EARLY.
After our talk they have quieted down noticeably so apparently it can be controllled and we're all getting more sleep down here. And they are being pleasant so no hard feelings. Maybe they really didn't know how loud it was.
