Tingling toes after standing for a long time?

I've just started a new job that involves a lot of standing, some walking, and at the end of a shift, my two big toes are somewhat numb and tingling.

My friend suggested that maybe I pinched or pulled a nerve. Any ideas?
Is it more likely to be my shoes, or the way I'm standing? (I'm really hoping it's not the shoes, as I can't afford new ones.)
Some relevant facts:
- I'm wearing Doc Marten's that have been great for long walks (2 hours+)
- I'm standing on mats; I don't know if they are proper anti-fatigue mats, but they seem pretty good and where I work is good on health & safety
- I have Morton's toe
