Brief Answer:
Can be vascular insufficiency.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
Feeling of cold toes can be suggestive of a vascular insufficiency in the legs or a neurological deficit due to chronic problems like Diabetes or due to functional disorder of the nerves or vitamin B 12 deficiencies.
