In brief: May be structural

If this is the only time it bothers you, it may be secondary to foot structure or function.
I would recommend going to a good running store and looking for a good motion control shoe and try an over-the-counter support, antiinflammatories and rest until comfortable. Have it evaluated by your podiatrist if persists. Dr l.

In brief: Tight shoes

It sounds like your shoes may be too tight in the depth where your toe is hitting the top of the shoes when it bends.
