Bones of the right foot. Digitised coloured X-ray of a normal human foot, showing its structure of bones in side view. At upper right is the tibia bone of the shin; the tibia articulates with the talus bone of the foot to form the ankle joint. At lower right is the calcaneous bone of the heel that forms the heel projection behind the foot. The talus and calcaneous articulate with a number of bones in the middle of the foot, which in turn articulate with metatarsal bones of the toes. Elongated metatarsal bones of the base of the toes are seen, and the phalanges forming the toes themselves are at lower left.
