Tweak soft part of foot (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

pinch

Here is my best explanation:

'tweak' is the definition.

('pinch' can be a synonym of 'tweak')

'soft part of foot' is the subsidiary indication.

'soft' becomes 'p'.

'part of foot' becomes 'inch' ('inch' is part of 'foot').

'p'+'inch'='pinch'

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for pinch that I've seen before include "Squeeze between the fingers", "Tweak", "Grip sharply; steal", "Grip tightly; steal (colloq.)", "Economise - steal", "Steal - a little salt, for example", "Nip - purloin", "Steal (informal); squeeze" and "Steal (colloq.); one felt by the poor".)
