In brief: Pain/shoe irritation

Claw toes are the contracture of both joints in a toe.
Symptoms can include the top of the toe rubbing in the shoe and/or the tip of the toe becoming painful or callusing due to abnormal pressure. Padding can be helpful, but surgery may be necessary depending on severity of symptom/problem. Foothealthfacts.Org. Dr l.

In brief: Several possible

A clawtoe is an abnormal contracture or a bending of the toe joints which results from a muscle or tendon imbalance due to the mechanical and structural changes in the foot that may occur over time.
This can be hereditary or due to environmental factors such as tight shoes. This abnormal bending can lead to abnormal pressure distribution resulting in pain, swelling, blistering, and corns.
