In brief: Club foot

Talipes is a congenital anomaly more commonly called club foot.
This is when the foot turns in near the ankle. It usually is an isolated abnormality but can be the signal for a genetic disorder. It can be surgically correctly by a pediatric orthopedic surgeon.

In brief: The word

Is often used in conjuction with another description like talipes equinovarus or talipes valgus describing a positional abnormality.
It is a combination of words tali = is the talus bone, pes is of the foot. So by itself i believe it is just synonomous with the talus. The bone in the foot that connects to the leg.
