Thanks for query,
As many a time our fingers joints have clicking sounds doing particular movements and this has no significance,same way clicking sounds in your big toes are there.
But as it is there since you started walking may have some defects in the joints.Consult orthopedic and get diagnosed.
ok and bye.
