Actually, it depends on the action, and the intended result.

For example, the man normally stays on the balls of his feet while traveling backwards during a Weave action. On the other hand, he should release his toe on the first two steps of a Wave or Back Feather, but then release the heel on the third. In other words, step 2 has delayed foot rise.

That's why in my original reply, for man's backward steps I wrote "variable; depends on movement".
