Is there a way of removing foot calluses permanently? Is cutting them with foot razor recommend?

In brief: Callus

Usually calluses are formed due to increased pressure.
To get rid of them may involve orthotics, change in shoegear, or even potentially surgery. You can make them less painful with the use of moisturizers after getting your feet wet to the dry/callused areas. Or use of a pumice stone daily after getting your feet wet as well. I would not advise you take a razor to your feet!
