These corns are more accurately described as a distal clavus. These are formed when the deformity of the digit turns the end of the digit towards the ground. The repeative trauma of walking on this skin causes the body to try and protectitself, therby building up a space occupying lesions. When these become very thick and hard they may become painful when walking.
