In brief: Medically, nothing
But you could pick things off the floor ;-) that's actually a question patients ask me when we're planning toe shortening surgery.
"can i pick things off the floor still?" long toes don't have a medical advantage.

In brief: Probably no benefit
Probably a benefit in animals that hang from trees, but not likely to be a benefit or detriment in humans.
Be happy with your toes, long or short!
