Corns, or small thickened areas of skin that can become painful, generally form as a result of excessive pressure or friction. They tend to occur on the tops of your toes or between them and are often caused by wearing shoes that don’t fit properly. Fortunately, to help ease your pain, a variety of brands sell corn cushions to prevent your shoes from rubbing against them. We chose pads made of soft cushy foam from well-respected brands like Dr. Scholl’s and more. They’re also waterproof and designed to stay on for hours, even after your shower.
