In brief: Moisturize

While there are many ways to soften the feet, i personally like applying moisturizer as regularly as possible particularly just before bed.
You should see a noticeable difference by morning.

You can put some Vaseline after a hot bath and wear a cotton socks and sleep with those. You can find your feet get so soft 1 week after.

In brief: Moisturizer may work

If you have thick, dry and calloused skin on your feet, it may be a disease like psoriasis or ichtyosis.
Certainly, prevent friction to your feet, and wear good shoes and socks, and use a moisturizing cream after your bath or shower every day, but if that is not helpful, you may try a cortisone cream, like lidex, (fluocinonide) by visiting a dermatologist.

In brief: Alpha hydroxy acids

Use a moisturizer that contains an Alpha hydroxy acid---lactic acid, glycolic acid.
Ask your pharmacist for products that contain these ingredients.
