Orthotic inserts reduce the friction that causes corns and calluses to develop. Since corns and calluses develop from improperly fitting shoes, wearing orthotics can help keep the feet stay secure in shoes. Overpronating is another cause of friction that can be fixed with orthotic inserts. There are quite a few different inserts to use inside the shoes. Arch supporting insoles will help correct pronation as well as keep the arch from falling. Both are ways to prevent developing corns or calluses. There are also toe caps, which cover individual toes. These are usually made of silicon, and they prevent toes from rubbing against each other or the shoes. There are also toe separators, toe straighteners, and toe corrector devices designed to relieve the pressure and friction that cause corns and calluses.
