Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Corn in such area appears due to regular compression of this area. The most probable source of such compression are described by you shoes. As long as the compression factor wont be eliminated, removing it in any way (including surgery) will be only temporal solution and for sure it will regrow.
So the best you can do is to find more comfortable shoes. If its impossible, please try to separate this two fingers with Gel Toe Spreader for example (see this as an example http://www.supportsusa.com/ankle/silipos/toe-spread.htm).

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.
