Everted Forefoot

When the subtalar joint is maintained in its defined neutral position, the forefoot should be perpendicular to a bisection of the posterior aspect of the calcaneus. If the forefoot is everted relative to the rearfoot, then a forefoot valgus or plantarflexed first ray is considered as being present. They will both function very differently depending on the range of motion of the midtarsal joints.
