Best Answer

You have seven tarsal bones: talus, calcaneus, cuniforms I, II, & III, cuboid, and navicular.

Then there are five metatarsals, I-IV. The great toe has two phalanges, and the other four toes have three each.

That's 7+5+2+12=26 total bones in the foot.

There is also a tiny sesamoid bone in the great toe, but this is usually not counted. Poor thing!
