Foot corns, small circles of thick skin, are often caused by poorly fitting shoes. Heels that are too loose can allow your foot to slide and rub. There are also some footwear designs that place excessive pressure on an area of the foot.

Wearing high heels for too long can squeeze your toes and cause other damage to your feet. Toe corns can also develop as a symptom of bunions and other foot problems.
