Got new running shoes yesterday, today both my little pinky toes are a little sore. Related? How should I fix it?

Partially relevant might be that I'm new to running (in the past I've biked in the gym). I bought some new running shoes yesterday (Asics) and went for a short jog (1.9 miles). Today the outer edges of both my little toes are a little red and sore, and it looks like there's a blister coming in on the left toe (left
foot). I assume the soreness comes from the running -- not much has changed lately.
So what should I do to prevent this soreness in future runs? Do the shoes not fit well, and should I exchange them? Different socks? Something else entirely?
Thanks for your advice in advance. I'm happy to provide more details if that would help.
