If you touch the toes that feel cold but the skin temperature feels normal, this would point to peripheral neuropathy as a probable cause. If the skin temperature also feels cold a circulation issue such as vasospasm would be likely. Blockage in the leg arteries would be unlikely in the absence of diabetes or heavy smoking history.
