As you can see in the following diagrams of foot, the foot is divided into 3 parts: the hindfoot, the midfoot, and the forefoot. The hindfoot is composed of 2 of the 7 tarsal bones, the talus, and the calcaneus; the midfoot contains the rest of the tarsal bones; and the forefoot contains the metatarsals and the phalanges. The ankle serves as foundation, shock absorber and propulsion engine. Take a look at the following foot diagram below.

The instep is the top portion of the foot between the toes and ankles. It forms the large arch on the sole of the foot. Its shape is formed by the tibialis anterior from the top and various ligaments in the sole of the foot from the bottom. Muscles, tendons, and ligaments run along the surfaces of the feet, allowing the complex movements needed for motion and balance. The Achilles tendon connects the heel to the calf muscle and is essential for running, jumping, and standing on the toes.
