In a literal way, it's another (better) way of saying to squeeze your toes so they bend down (curl up), instead of laying flat.

Figuratively, it's an idiom that basically means either feeling very uncomfortable because of embarrassment or super excited. It can really go either way; it depends on the context it is used in.
