Best Foot Rasps for Tough Calluses

It’s not uncommon to develop calluses, especially if you spend a lot of time on your feet. When too much friction or pressure occurs in a certain area, thick, hardened layers of skin form as a result. And while it may seem impossible to remove tough skin on the bottom of your feet, a callus rasp, or foot file, can help. To help you find a quality one, we did some research and rounded up a few of the best models on the market. They’re meant to be sharp and offer a comfortable grip for fast and easy results.

Pros: It can be used on dry or wet feet and features a soft-grip handle that can be removed if you want.

Cons: Cleaning it may be somewhat difficult.
