Ankle

ankle jointanklesankle-joint
The joints of the foot are the ankle and subtalar joint and the interphalangeal articulations of the foot. The two long bones of the lower leg, the tibia and fibula, are connected to the top of the talus to form the ankle.
The ankle, or the talocrural region, is the region where the foot and the leg meet.

Leg

legslocomotory appendageslower extremities
In many animals with feet, the foot is a separate organ at the terminal part of the leg made up of one or more segments or bones, generally including claws or nails.
The distal end is often modified to distribute force (such as a foot).

Calcaneus

calcaneumheel bonesustentaculum tali
The hindfoot is composed of the talus (or ankle bone) and the calcaneus (or heel bone).
In humans, the calcaneus (from the Latin calcaneus or calcaneum, meaning heel ) or heel bone is a bone of the tarsus of the foot which constitutes the heel.

Arches of the foot

archarch of the footarches
The five irregular bones of the midfoot, the cuboid, navicular, and three cuneiform bones, form the arches of the foot which serves as a shock absorber.
The arches of the foot, formed by the tarsal and metatarsal bones, strengthened by ligaments and tendons, allow the foot to support the weight of the body in the erect posture with the least weight.

Subtalar joint

SubtalarTalocalcanealtalocalcaneal joint
The joints of the foot are the ankle and subtalar joint and the interphalangeal articulations of the foot.
talocalcaneal joint, is a joint of the foot.

Navicular bone

The five irregular bones of the midfoot, the cuboid, navicular, and three cuneiform bones, form the arches of the foot which serves as a shock absorber.
The navicular bone in humans is one of the tarsal bones, found in the foot.

Tibia

The two long bones of the lower leg, the tibia and fibula, are connected to the top of the talus to form the ankle.
While the epiphyses are the two rounded extremities of the bone; an upper (also known as superior or proximal) closest to the thigh and a lower (also known as inferior or distal) closest to the foot.

Tarsus (skeleton)

tarsustarsaltarsi
The tarsus is a cluster of seven articulating bones in each foot situated between the lower end of tibia and fibula of the lower leg and the metatarsus.

Plantar fascia

plantar aponeurosisplantar aponeuroses
The midfoot is connected to the hind- and fore-foot by muscles and the plantar fascia.
The plantar fascia is the thick connective tissue (aponeurosis) which supports the arch on the bottom (plantar side) of the foot.

Cuboid bone

cuboid
The five irregular bones of the midfoot, the cuboid, navicular, and three cuneiform bones, form the arches of the foot which serves as a shock absorber.
In the human body, the cuboid bone is one of the seven tarsal bones of the foot.

Cuneiform bones

cuneiformcuneiformsmedial cuneiform
The five irregular bones of the midfoot, the cuboid, navicular, and three cuneiform bones, form the arches of the foot which serves as a shock absorber.
There are three cuneiform ("wedge-shaped") bones in the human foot:

First metatarsal bone

first metatarsalfirstmetatarsal 1
There can be many sesamoid bones near the metatarsophalangeal joints, although they are only regularly present in the distal portion of the first metatarsal bone.
The first metatarsal bone is the bone in the foot just behind the big toe.

Phalanx bone

phalangesphalanxproximal phalanx
Similar to the fingers of the hand, the bones of the toes are called phalanges and the big toe has two phalanges while the other four toes have three phalanges each.
The phalanges (singular: phalanx ) are digital bones in the hands and feet of most vertebrates.

Interphalangeal joints of the foot

interphalangealinterphalangeal jointInterphalangeal articulations of foot
The joints of the foot are the ankle and subtalar joint and the interphalangeal articulations of the foot.
The interphalangeal joints of the foot are between the phalanx bones of the toes in the feet.

Tarsometatarsal joints

Lisfranc jointtarsometatarsal jointLisfranc
Extensor group: tibialis anterior originates on the proximal half of the tibia and the interosseous membrane and is inserted near the tarsometatarsal joint of the first digit.
The tarsometatarsal joints (Lisfranc joints) are arthrodial joints in the foot.

Tibialis anterior muscle

tibialis anterioranterior tibialisM. tibialis cranialis
Extensor group: tibialis anterior originates on the proximal half of the tibia and the interosseous membrane and is inserted near the tarsometatarsal joint of the first digit.
The tibialis anterior is a muscle in humans that originates in the upper two-thirds of the lateral (outside) surface of the tibia and inserts into the medial cuneiform and first metatarsal bones of the foot.

Anatomy

The foot (plural feet) is an anatomical structure found in many vertebrates.
Humans have a head, neck, trunk (which includes the thorax and abdomen), two arms and hands, and two legs and feet.

Abductor hallucis muscle

abductor hallucis
Muscles of the big toe: abductor hallucis stretches medially along the border of the sole, from the calcaneus to the first digit.
The abductor hallucis muscle is an intrinsic muscle of the foot.

Joint

jointsarticulationarticulated
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.

Toe

Similar to the fingers of the hand, the bones of the toes are called phalanges and the big toe has two phalanges while the other four toes have three phalanges each. Muscles of the big toe: abductor hallucis stretches medially along the border of the sole, from the calcaneus to the first digit. Muscles of the little toe: Stretching laterally from the calcaneus to the proximal phalanx of the fifth digit, abductor digiti minimi form the lateral margin of the foot and is the largest of the muscles of the fifth digit.
Toes are the digits (fingers) of the foot of a tetrapod.

Sesamoid bone

There can be many sesamoid bones near the metatarsophalangeal joints, although they are only regularly present in the distal portion of the first metatarsal bone.

Triceps surae muscle

calf muscletriceps suraecalf
The superficial layer of posterior leg muscles is formed by the triceps surae and the plantaris.
These muscles both insert into the calcaneus, the bone of the heel of the human foot, and form the major part of the muscle of the posterior leg, commonly known as the calf muscle.

Abductor digiti minimi muscle of foot

abductor digiti minimiAbductor digiti quintiabductor
Muscles of the little toe: Stretching laterally from the calcaneus to the proximal phalanx of the fifth digit, abductor digiti minimi form the lateral margin of the foot and is the largest of the muscles of the fifth digit.
The abductor digiti minimi (abductor minimi digiti, abductor digiti quinti) is a muscle which lies along the lateral (outer) border of the foot, and is in relation by its medial margin with the lateral plantar artery, vein and nerves.

Bunion

Hallux valgusbunionsBunionectomy
Due to their position and function, feet are exposed to a variety of potential infections and injuries, including athlete's foot, bunions, ingrown toenails, Morton's neuroma, plantar fasciitis, plantar warts and stress fractures.
A bunion is a deformity of the joint connecting the big toe to the foot.

Plantar wart

Due to their position and function, feet are exposed to a variety of potential infections and injuries, including athlete's foot, bunions, ingrown toenails, Morton's neuroma, plantar fasciitis, plantar warts and stress fractures.
A plantar wart is a wart occurring on the bottom of the foot or toes.
