Is it possibly for your toes to get longer as you age? My toes are freaking me out.

Okay, so I understand that as you age your feet can get wider and sort of flatten out. But that's not my problem. I'm forty years old and in the past two years I've gone up half a shoe size. It's not that my feet are any wider. The shoes are just too short. My toes are jamming up against the front. And they LOOK longer too. They were already long and weirdly prehensile to begin with. My podiatrist just laughed at me. Obviously it's not a serious concern, because there's a simple solution - buy bigger shoes - but I'm curious.
