Re: calluses on heel and toes

A callus is simply the skin trying to protect itself from stress. The area you note does not necessarily have to rub in the shoe. It can be rubbing against any hardened surface, such as the raft. Think if you are positioning yourself in the boat with the foot pressed against the bottom or side and it rubs continuously. It is possible that a closed in shoe would give you more protection, but I assume the sandals are better for the wetness.
