I think in some ways the X-step might be easier. With standstills you have to generate all the forward momentum from the pressure in your rear foot in fairly short time. With an X-step you are already bringing in some momentum so the rear leg is less important for generating forward momentum.

At what point does the pressure/body weight come off the rear foot? Is it during the transition from counter-clockwise to clockwise rotation? Is there still pressure applied during plantar flexion?

I am thinking of Will Schusterick’s current form and how he leaves the ground heal first on the rear foot. He still has planter flexion and taps his toes to the ground after that but with no real pressure applied to the ground.

Definitely before the clockwise rotation. Weight should come off the rear foot before the front heel plants and the front heel should plant before anything unwinds (clockwise rotation).

There is a little bit of pelvic clockwise rotation (passive) while going from toe to heel on the front foot.

It gets fuzzy talking about it and depends somewhat on your width of stance or stride speed. There will still be some pressure when plantar flexing the heel off the ground, otherwise you have no leverage.

Will’s form has gotten worse since 2015. He used to make a proper move off the instep.

Kevin Jones basically leaves the ground completely before planting. I don’t particularly recommend his form either.

But do you want to be leveraging from the ground that late into the plant? I’ve always felt like the plantar flexion was more geared towards getting the left hip to drop below the right hip and into position to counter the swing.

Making the move before front heel plants/braces.

So the pressure moves between the feet in a figure of 8?
