The arch can be seen under the skin. The dorsal venous arch rests about halfway between the metatarsal phalangeal joints and the ankle joint, superior to the metatarsals bones. The arch goes over the five metatarsals' medial segment. At the swelling of the arch, the interdigital and dorsal digital veins are received. They meet up with the superficial dorsal and plantar venous plexuses between the toes. At the hollow of the arch the interdigital perforating veins merge.
