I Have Pain At The Bottom Of My Right Feet. The Pain Is Bottom On The Right Two Smallest Toe.

I have pain at the bottom of my right feet. The pain is towards the two smallest toe at bottom. This started just few days ago when I wore an old sneakers to work. I can move my feet freely. At work, I am on my feet 80% of the time. Do you know what could be causing this pain and how I can ease it? Thanks.
