For example if me or someone else looks at the bottom of my foot straight on you don t see it, but looking sideways from the arch, I can deep a fairly deep cut. It doesn t hurt or bleed , but it does collect dirt

Thanks for posting the qwery.
You might be having plantar eczema where the sole of the feet thickens, dries up and cracks develop over it.
Proper moisturiser with potent steroidal ointments will reduce the sole cracks.
Use of soft footwear is recommended.
Early treatment after consulting a dermatologist is recommended.
Hope for speedy recovery.
