It looks like the foot, which is extremely overgrown, shed part of the dead layers around the outer edge of the sole and and just needs the rest trimmed out. It most likely left the odd holes because of the excess moisture. The whole foot is in dire need of a trim.
loosie and KigerQueen like this.

Yep, overgrown, combined with chronic moisture, maybe a bit of infection too. Good trim & spray with t-tree oil or such.
