Left big toe will not curl

Hi everyone, I have a weird injury/issue. Recently I moved up from a pair of Five Ten Aspire shoes to La Sportiva Solutions and discovered that I could not walk nor climb with my left foot without huge discomfort.

I thought that was a bit weird, since the right foot was just fine. Upon inspecting my toes, I noticed that my left big toe does not curl very well, if at all, causing it to get jammed into the shoe when I put it on.

I was wondering if anyone has experienced anything like that? I'm trying to recollect every breaking it, but nothing comes to mind really...

Hmm, can't really say what could cause it (other than climbing shoes) but I have the same issue on both big toes. I don't remeber either when it started (been climbing for 14 years now) but I definitely remember being able to pick up a pebble with my toes before I climbed (like when I was a boy). For a few years I haven't been able to do this anymore.

It's not causing me any other issues though.
