When playing a slide sock feet on the floor next to endpoint must touch the floor with your thumb; when casting feet in the I or V position must not omit the heel - it keeps ahead and appreciated; foot, bending, selected, and touching the floor with your thumb goes to the whole plane soles.

When playing a leg with the toe sliding across the floor before contact with the floor gradually transferred to the thumb, in closing his feet in the I or V position heel is not raised, but remains lowered.
