Painful toes that are mildly cool to the touch could be a circulation issue, and you may want to see a doctor for professional advice. Our feet are complex structures that allow us to remain stable while walking, and shoes that fit well go a long way in maintaining happy, healthy feet. If your shoes are rubbing on your toes, causing pain, blisters, calluses or corns, or sores. I would suggest purchasing newer shoes that are comfortable and feel good when you walk.
I would suggest that you buy shoes that have as much arch support as possible, and you will find the most comfort with. Treatment is geared toward doing the least invasive amount as possible to achieve the best results.
If you suffer any joint pain, dislocation, or your toe points upward this will require attention before the condition worsens, so your treatment will depend on the underlying cause. Surgery is not so often necessary but it could be done to realign, reshape or modify metatarsal bones. Treatment can usually be successful without the need for surgical intervention.
