Discoloration: on your toes should be looked at by a Podiatrist. It could be something as simple as a bruise however, since it has been there for months it is good to have a correct diagnosis and treatment plan if needed. Make sure your shoes are well padded, have support and have enough room at the ends and sides to prevent future skin breakdown!

Toe Pressure Spots: You probably just have pressure irritation from your tight boots. Consider changing to slightly longer or one with a deeper toe box. Dr Rich Blake Have the shoe store give their advice.
