Wearing-in new shoes is very important. Take your time gradually increasing your activities in them, even swap back to your old shoes frequently within the first week. The shoe needs to get used to you but more importantly you need to get used to the shoes.
Remove heavy callus before any activity event that may be above average. A light callus protects your feet from blisters so do not shave off callus excessively. This is best performed by a podiatrist. Condition your feet to their environment. Build up your distance or intensity gradually over weeks or months prior to the event. This is imperative for the skin and also the musculoskeletal system in avoiding injury and overuse. Surgical spirits (Isopropyl Alcohol) can speed up the conditioning of skin to resist friction.
