    Thank you for your question. Pain in the small toes is often associated with contractures (hammertoes) and/or tight-fitting shoes. As an initial recommendation I would wear wider shoes as well as avoid shoes with an angulated toe box. This will eliminate pressure on the toes. If you feel that the toes are not contracted and that they are not rubbing on the shoes, then I would see a Podiatrist who can better evaluate you for other causes of toe pain.
