Your foot may also rub against a poorly placed seam or stitch inside the shoe. Bunions or hammertoe. A bunion is an abnormal, bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of your big toe. A hammertoe is a toe deformity in which your toe becomes curled up like a claw. Both of these conditions can cause constant rubbing inside your shoe.

Many bunions can be treated by switching to shoes that fit properly and that don’t squash the toes, the AAOS says. Most bunions do not need to be corrected with surgery, particularly if they are not causing pain.
