The 26 bones of the foot consist of eight distinct types, including the tarsals, metatarsals, phalanges, cuneiforms, talus, navicular, and cuboid bones.

The skeletal structure of the foot is similar to that of the hand but, because the foot bears more weight, it is stronger but less movable.

The bones of the foot are organized into the tarsal bones, metatarsal bones, and phalanges.

The foot begins at the lower end of the tibia and fibula, the two bones of the lower leg. At the base of those, a grouping of bones form the tarsals, which make up the ankle and upper portion of the foot.
