Callous: Most likely you have a hammertoe, though a full exam is needed to be sure. If it rubs against shoegear, you develop a thick skin (callous). This is your bodies way of protecting itself. See a podiatrist for treatment options.

May be callus: It is difficult to say without examining the toes. It could be that you are developing callus tissue due to shoe pressure. See a podiatrist for evaluation and treatment.
