Foot in shoe. Coloured X-ray of a foot seen in side view, wearing a shoe. Bones and soft tissues of the foot are visible. The ankle (upper left) is made up of several bones, and links the leg to the foot. The tibia (shin bone) meets the talus (top bone in the foot), and is separated by a pad of cartilage. The calcaneus (heel bone) extends out from the back of the foot (centre left). From the talus extend several smaller bones, culminating in the phalanges (toes) at lower right. The shoe has a raised heel, and a buckle strap (yellow, centre left).
