Wrong clips or bad foot position?

I'd like to work my way up to getting a pair of clipless pedals so I thought I'd start off with a pair of toe clips, just plastic short ones without straps to get used to the idea and see how they work out.

First ride out less than a mile cycled and I had to stop and take them off again. It felt like I was walking on tip toes - I didn't feel like I was able to really use my legs fully!

I used the largest size they had but obviously it was making me have my foot too far backwards.

Is this:

A) Bad choice of clips
B) Bad position of feet that has led differrnt muscles to be used and so forcing my foot in the right place highlights this?
