Potential causes of a burning sensation in the little toe include physical injury, such as stubbing the toe; sitting in a fixed position for an extended period of time; wearing shoes that don't fit properly; and circulation disorders that restrict blood flow to the feet, according to Healthgrades. Peripheral neuropathy, a disorder that disrupts the functioning of peripheral nerves that relay signals between the brain, spinal cord and body, can also cause a burning sensation in the toes.
