In brief: It will on its own

When your foot "falls asleep", what you are experiencing is a nerve compression due to a positional change.
This could be a result of sitting on your foot or leg too long, sitting on a toilet seat too long, or crossing your legs for a prolonged period. Once thou change position and blood flow returns to the area, feeling should return. If it doesn't, consult your doctor or see a neurologist.
