can you walk on a broken pinky toe?

Yes: Yes, but it may depend how serious a fracture and swelling there is. People have been known to walk on ankle fractures, so just because you can walk on it, does not exclude fracture diagnosis. Hope that helps.

Sure: You can walk on it but tape it to the next toe to provide some stability . If pain persists you might have a spiral fracture and need to see foot specialist.
