    Alexei Yagudin's straightline footwork in his SP "racing" in 2002 Skate America is the best. But in general, Kurt Browning has it.

    No Lambiel, who dances his footwork with such joy and openness of movement?

    No Takahashi, who puts more emotion and drama into 25 seconds of footwork than most skaters put into their whole program?

    Sorry. No one on your list.

    I loved Mao Asada's footwork for her LP (to the music "Czardas).

    I think Alexei Yagudin and Kurt Browning are best among both of men and women.
    Of the above women's list separately, I like the one of Michelle Kwan's 'Aranjuez' in 2003 worlds and Yu-Na Kim's 'El Tango De Roxane' in 2007 worlds.

    By far Kurt Browning is teh best ever!!!!

    Yuka Sato would be my second choice... but she's pretty far off the best

    Another vote for Kurt, with Scott Hamilton a very close second. I can't believe Scott wasn't among the choices in the poll!

    On the ladies' side, no one has yet to match Yuka in the footwork department, IMO.

    Undoubtedly, Kurt Browning is the BEST.

    However, yagudin, Jeff buttle and Takahashi also have fantastic step sequences.

    Especially Jeff's footwork in the last season's LP(The ararat) was ABSOULTELY fantastic, even though he had a lot of mistakes on the other parts...T_T

    I liked Kwan's footwork over the years. I just saw her Carmen SP from what year? and she was dynamic, but at that time, no hip problems.

    I believe footwork was relegated to the back room of the technical idea of skating until Alexi came on with his toe raking moves to a very bravura piece of music. Since then, footwork has garnered a big place in the technical idea of skating.

    Aside from Alexei and Michelle, I do think it is Kurt's domain as the most expressive and consistent novel footwork if figure skating. It's probably because he is the choreographer of his own footwork and does not need Morozov.

    What about Sandu, he's got Kurt Browning beat by a mile.
