In brief: Yes

Arthritis is pain and inflammation of a joint, so any body part that has joints can have arthritis.
I've seen arthritis in all toes, but especially where the great toe meets the rest of the foot. It can be caused by poor foot mechanics, trauma, or diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. A podiatrist should be able to diagnose the case and offer treatment options.

In brief: Certainly

Toes can get arthritis just like hands.
Fortunately you don't have to open jars with your feet, but walking can be painful.
