Corns & Calluses
A corn is a build-up of hard skin near a bony area of a toe or between toes . Corns may be caused by pressure from shoes that rub against the toes or cause friction between them. After you have a bath or shower, while your skin is still soft, pumice use a stone or an emery board to smooth and gently remove the build-up of tissue. Move the emery board or pumice stone in one direction only. You can also use cushioned or medicated pads to remove corns. If in doubt, see a Chiropodist. To avoid developing corns, ensure you wear correctly fitting shoes which are wide enough and don't rub your feet.

A callus is a build-up of hard skin, usually on the underside of the foot. Calluses are caused by an uneven distribution of weight, generally on the bottom of the forefoot or heel. They can also be caused by improperly fitting shoes or a skin abnormality. lt's normal to have some calluses on the soles of your feet. After your bath or shower, use a pumice stone to gently remove the build-up of tissue. You can also use cushioned pads and in-soles. Your doctor may prescribe treatments to soften the callus, or see a Chiropodist. To avoid developing calluses, ensure you wear correctly fitting shoes which are wide enough and don't rub your feet.

Shoe Features which Can Help With Corns & Calluses
The features built into many of our styles that makes our shoe more comfortable.
Many of our shoes are made using a process of direct injection moulding polyurethane to the upper. This way of manufacture traps thousands of tiny air bubbles within the sole structure (just like a cork) acting as shock absorbers, making the shoes with this sole extremely comfortable to wear all day. Look for shoes with this logo.
Many of the insoles within our shoes are leather with polyurethane foam giving them similar comfort properties as the soles described above.
There are few internal seams used in the manufacture of our shoes and where there are seams they are well away from the toe box ensuring a smooth internal space for your fore foot.
