Thanks for the query.

You seem to have developed either a friction blister or podo pompholyx.

So either it is due to skin friction from your footwear.
Or it can be an eczematous skin condition.

You might need treatment with topical steroids and emollients.
Take oral antihistamines for the itching.

Wear soft canvas footwear.

See a local dermatologist if the lesions persist or increase.

Hope it helps
