“Midtarsal break” is a term referencing a proposed feature of sasquatch foot morphology.

The human foot features a fixed longitudinal arch. Grover Krantz (1992) states that “a truly arched foot cannot leave a flat imprint under any circumstance” (p. 28). In contrast, according to some anatomical authorities (G. Krantz, Jeff Meldrum), the sasquatch foot apparently lacks a fixed arch; it is flat and flexible. The high degree of flexibility at the middle of the foot, as inferred from examination of sasquatch footprints and casts, is attributed to a transverse tarsal joint, the midtarsal break. This kind of mid-foot flexibility is characteristic of the great apes.

The midtarsal break is evidenced inside most alleged sasquatch footprints as a pressure ridge, a mound of substrate, located just behind the foot’s midpoint.
