I've found that heel cracks are a result of thick calluses, and uneven  
moisture content around the heel.  A sandal, where the sole has high  humidity due 
to the sweaty plastic, and the perimeter is exposed to low humidity  of summer 
days, plus the flexing of the foot is what gets my heel cracks  started.  I 
agree with L-Rod about keeping the callus smoothed down, then  the callus will 
be less rigid.  I have some friends who never wear shoes at  all, in Arizona!, 
have serious calluses but never any heel cracks because the  skins stays 
evenly dry.
