The brown spots on the bottom of your feet could just be from walking bare foot around outside and it could just be stained. Another reason it could be brown is from a bruise.

Brown spots on the sole of feet can occure due to lichen planus, keratoderma, plantar warts, planter nevi or freckels, fungal or bacterial infection, skin cancer etc. It can occure also due to tight fitting shoes which results in poor blood circulation.

Planter warts, on the bottom of feet can cause brown spots. Syphilis can also cause reddish brown spots, below feet. Other common causes are bacterial and fungal infections. Ill fitting shoes can cause irregular blood circulation in feet which can result in darkening of the skin below feet. Tight shoes may cause corns or hard and dark spots below feet.

Pigmentation loss is one thing to think about when seeing brown spots on the bottom of your feet. The medical term for this is vitiligo. This will cause patching spots on the skin.
