Ball (anatomy)

Ball (anatomy)

The ball of the foot is where the toes join with the rest of the foot. It is muscular and easily blistered.

Dancers and runners often move with their weight on the balls of their feet for better balance.

When riding a sportbike, this is where your foot should meet the footpeg.
