It seems that men take their feet for granted – hiding them in socks and shoes for almost the whole year, only revealing the cracked heels and yellowed nails once the weather makes sandals mandatory. Apparently they can embrace face creams and hair products, but due care doesn't make it past the ankle.

And that's not just the older generation – I can't tell you how many hobbit-y toes I glimpsed at the men's spring/summer '16 shows. Preening your feet may seem like the last word in vanity, but trust me: it's a worthy extra step in your grooming regime.

Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi

£29.99, available nationwide

The adverts for these electronic foot files make me feel queasy, but there's no arguing with the results – smooth heels without having to sand away for ages.

Tweezerman barrel spring toenail clipper

£22.50, boots.com

If you prefer cutting with clippers to scissors, these will make light work of even the thickest toenails without splitting or damaging the nail.

 

Crystal nail file

£15.50, leightondennyexpertnails.com

If you have a tendency to cut too short, try gently filing instead – a crystal file will last a lifetime and is much more hygienic than standard versions.

BruzZ nail brush

£9.99, boots.com

Dirty toenails are easily dealt with thanks to silicone bristles, which are far less painful than nail brushes of old – and more hygienic, too.

Bliss softening socks

£39, blissworld.co.uk

If applying lotion regularly feels like too much of a chore, try using these softening socks once a week to soften hardened heels.
