Strange foot pain

I rode yesterday and all morning I was feeling great, no problems.
In the early afternoon, I noticed I started to feel a severe pain/burn in my left foot where the toes meet the rest of the foot. This pain flared u every time I did a toe-side turn. It seemed like my heel was locked in pretty tight. When I removed my socks at the end of the day, I notice a large red mark just below my big toe where it meets the foot.
Any idea on what would cause this? It almost seems like it would result in heel lift. The right foot was perfectly comfortable the entire day. My foot is fine today and it is not sore, even when I stand on my toes.

Thanks for any input on this problem.

I already had a pair of SuperFeet insoles in the boots.

I must have been getting some heel lift in my left boot. It is the only thing that I would imagine would cause intense discomfort in that part of the foot as the day progresses. I will have to pay a bit more attention to my left foot the next time I ride.

A small fold on your sock that you didn't get smoothed out properly?

Last year I got a very nasty wound on my right foot as I the first day had a small fold right where the boot tightens the most about the heel. It started as a blister roughly 2 cm across, and over the course of the (even with blister band-aids) next seven days it evolved to be a roughly 3 cm across open wound, over 2 mm deep, as I wouldn't give up riding even a single day. Had me limping for 3 months, but it was worth it!

That was caused by a small fold in a very tight part of the boot, where there is a lot of potential minor friction. The place you decribe doesn't experience as much pressure and friction, so a fold might not cause as much damage.
