In brief: Too many to list!

There are several dozen in your feet: consider the fact that you have 28 bones in your feet (including sesamoids), and ligaments that cross all the joints between them--usually more than one per joint.
In the ankle, you have an important one in the front and another in the back, several strong ones on the inside, and two that are commonly "sprained" on the outside.
