The foot (plural feet) is an anatomical structure that found in many vertebrates. This is the terminal portion of the limb that carries weight and allows locomotion. In many foot animals, the foot is a separate organ on the limb of the foot, consisting of one or more segments or bones, usually including claws or nails.

The human foot is a strong and complex mechanical structure containing 26 bones, 33 joints (20 of which are actively articulated) and more than a hundred muscles, tendons and ligaments. The joints of the foot are ankles and subtalar joints and ligaments.

The leg can be divided into the hindfoot, the midfoot, and the forefoot:

The hindfoot consists of the talus (or bone of the ankle) and the calcane (or calcaneus). Two long bones of the lower leg, shin and fibula are connected to the top of the talus to form an ankle. Tallus, bound in a sub-subject, the calneus, the largest bone of the foot, softens under a layer of fat.


The five uneven bones of the middle of the cuboid, navicular, and three cuneiform bones, which serve as a shock absorber. In the middle, the back and front muscles and the plantar fascia are connected.

The forefoot consists of five fingers and the corresponding five proximal long bones that form metatarsus. Like fingers, the bones of the toes are called phalanges, and the thumb has two phalanges, and the other four fingers have three phalanges. Joints between phalanxes are called interphalangeal, and between metatarsus and phalanges are called meta-arched phalanges (MTP).
