In brief: Skin line disruption
Along with the other answers, there is noticible disruption of the normal skin lines of the feet when encountering plantar warts.
Callouses will have skin lines running through them, but warts will have a "stop-and-start" distribution to the skin lines.

In brief: Pain, callus
Plantar warts are on the bottom (sole) of your foot, and are often painful to squeeze and develop callus tissue around them. They will usually disrupt the skin lines.
