In brief: Answer

Your shoes are too small.
They might not feel small when you first put them on, but your feet swell throughout the day. You need to get appropriately fitted shoes for your feet.

In brief: Pressure

If your feet swell or your shoes are too tight it may create pressure on the nerves of the feet and evantually cause numbess or burning.
