In brief: Neurapraxia

This is like a bruising of the nerve.
It can take days to weeks to resolve, but it usually does. Avoid further damage by wearing very loose shoes for now.

In brief: Paresthesia.

You are feeling the effects of putting pressure on the nerve that protects the inside of the big toe.
The feeling is called paresthesia and will subside with time. Avoid wearing the shoe as repeated injury to the nerve could cause a more permanent problem.
