With difficulty - the soles of my feet are pretty minging tbh!
Anyway, I have recently discovered that vaseline makes an excellent foot moisturiser - smear it on, rub it in a bit and then put some socks on for a while - seems to work for me. And then put a lovely bright nail polish on and it instantly makes your feet look pretty
My feet are horny, crusty and vile, but they are a long way (at least 5' 7") from my eyes, so I try to ignore them.
I do sometimes set about them with one of those lovely corn knives, which "shave" off all the dead skin in a very satisfying manner. I also cut/paint my toenails (currently still red/white/blue as I haven't re-done them since the Royal Wedding).
I do have some heel cream and a pair of cotton socks to sleep in, but I rarely remember to use it. My heels look like the surface of the moon.
I do like nice feet! I try to foot file mine at least once a week (on dry not damp skin). Use a foot balm after my morning shower everyday. Do my nails, well, would hope for once a week but more like every other week! Having them exposed in the summer does mean this needs to be done much more often though.
I use Mama Mio O-Mega body scrub on my feet. It contains lots of gorgeous natural oils so leaves them baby soft. I also keep CND Cucumber Foot Balm in my kitchen so that when I am about to wash my hands, I apply foot balm first, before washing hands and applying moisturiser to them too
Another trick which works quite well is to keep a pot of foot cream by your bed so that you slather it on each night.
