1B Pulls foot?

SDS

Does it usually look like the 1B pulls his foot?

Good first basemen will do that on close plays when they can. If timed right, it gives the appearance to the ump that the ball got there ahead of the runner and the out was completed before the runner hit the bag. Similar to infielders applying a slap tag on a sliding runner.
