Amy Purdy: Dancing With the Stars, and on Hydraulic Feet!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

On Dancing With The Stars, being a double amputee might be seen as a disadvantage.

But Paralympic snowboarder Amy Purdy isn't letting it slow her down.

Amy Purdy and Derek Hough

Amy tells TMZ that she has different feet for different types of dances. Forget wood or cumbersome mechanics, Amy's special dancing feet include ankles that work on hydraulics.

Southern California Prosthetics has sent her several pairs to try, including ones she can wear with high heels! No matter what kind of feet she's rocking, her dancing is pretty amazing.

You can see one of her pairs of specially made feet in action when you watch Dancing With the Stars online. See Monday's performances right here:
