Part-leopard?: It you are part leopard, jaguar, or ocelot, then it it is likely hereditary. Kidding! Need more info: though. How big are they? How many are there? How long have you had them? Are they clustered in one spot or all over? Do they itch or hurt? Do they wash off? Are they flat or raised up? Any other medical problems, foot problems? Re-ask your question with some more details so we may help.

Time to see your doc: Without looking, I can't say. But I can give you a list of some possibilities. Plantar warts often look black. Melanoma that occurs specifically on the palms and soles of feet can appear black. Blood blisters and gangrene or frostbite (but these things are not subtle), and sometimes foreign bodies like small splinters can appear as black spots. http://www.dermatologyoasis.net/acral-lentiginous-melanoma/
