There are many possible causes, but given that your burning goes away or is less severe when you remove your shoes eas me to think that there may be a nerve entrapment. BUT you do not tell me where on your foot the burning is, or if it is both feet.
Diabetes can be another cause, and certain vitamin deficiencies can aso be the culprit,
Please start at your GP as there are many different causes and often it is only by process of elimination that you will arrive at the cause
