Stern and Susman  interpret the broad attachment sites for the cubonavicular and calcaneonavicular ligaments on the plantar region of the navicular as an indication of a medial longitudinal arch and of restricted mobility. In contrast, Sarmiento and Marcus  and Harcourt-Smith  suggest the large navicular tuberosity argues against the presence of a medial longitudinal arch. In addition Berillon  suggests that the apelike dorsal obliquity of the Au. afarensis navicular indicates a range of dorsiflexion that is inconsistent with a medial longitudinal arch.
Sapiens and Au. afarensis, these two lines are approximately parallel. Latimer et al.  use this as evidence to predict that the Au. afarensis ankle joint would have enjoyed less mobility than that of the African apes.
