A 30-year-old male presented with asymptomatic papules over the heels for the past six years. He had history of playing amateur football. On examination, there were yellowish soft papules over the heels bilaterally, which were noticeable while standing and disappeared when he lifted his foot off the ground. [Figure 1],[Figure 2] He did not have similar lesions over the wrist. He had no findings suggestive of lax skin or hyper-mobile joints.
