Sweat serves as a mechanism to cool down the body. The foot when it is enclosed in a shoe sweats more. If there is no sweat then it is possible that friction will build up and callus will form. I have not ever seen this condition so I am out on a limb here. I might suggest you try socks that are made with Cool Max or some other material that helps wick perspiration away. Cotton does a poor job. Good shock absorbing insoles in the athletic shoes might also be helpful.
