Brief Answer:
Although not a serious injury,may send the picture

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for posting
I have gone through your query and since you were wearing mocassin type slippers,it should not be a serious injury. To help you better please tell me-
1.Do you have any swelling at toes with bluish black discoloration?
2.Any difficulty in moving the toes?
Meanwhile you may do Ice fomentation,limb elevation and take Ibuprofen.If possible may send the picture of foot .
Wishing you good health.
Take care
