In brief: Not sure

The info given is limited and not specific to one problem. Possibilities include low back disk problems (like a rupture or herniation), spinal stenosis (narrowing of the nerve channel in the back causing nerve irritation).
Foot numbness can also be caused by nerve problems unrelated to the back.
