This article is about a foot as part of the human body. For other uses of foot, see foot (disambiguation).



A right foot.

The feet (singular "foot") are the lower extremities of the leg, and are used by human beings for bipedal locomotion, also known as walking.

The pair foot and feet are one of seven mutated English plurals.

The structures of the human foot and hand are variations on the same basic five-digit anatomy, in common with many other vertebrates. They are also the most complex, comprising half the bones in the body.

In many animals, the parts of the body analogous to the feet and hands are often known as paws.

The medical speciality related to treatment of the feet is podiatry.
