In brief: Possibly

Make sure that your shoe fits properly and you may need a good arch support or orthotic to give you more support.

In brief: Maybe

Ill fitting shoes will cramp toes and destabilize heel strike and stance producing stress and pain.

In brief: Numb

While shoes might be the problem , it would seem unlikely you would buy ill fitting shoes.
Possibilities are limb length discrepancy causing excess pronation on one side as well as plantar fasciitis and bone spur(s) on that side.
