In brief: Prevent rubbing

Callouses and corns are the body's way of responding to friction and rubbing.
They are common on the feet, when one toe rubs against another toe, or against a tight shoe. So, the first thing is to cover and protect the areas that are being rubbed with a piece of cotton or a bandaid, and then use a cream with urea and/or Hydrocortisone to soften the corn. It will take months to get better.

In brief: Stone , padding

Use stone or ped egg to thin area, pad area with felt strips and wear shoes which do not put pressure on areas.

And sometimes soaking the area in water beforehand makes it easier to "hone" them down.
