Their legs were straight legs, and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf’s foot, and they gleamed like burnished bronze. Bible

“legs.” The Hebrew word is actually “feet,” but in the Hebrew culture the “foot” can also refer to the lower leg, which apparently it does here. Similarly, the “hand” can refer to the lower arm almost to the elbow, which is why the Bible says the nails were driven into Jesus’ “hands,” but we know from Roman custom it was actually the wrist.

“gleamed.” The Hebrew word also can be translated “shined” or “sparkled” so exactly how the feet looked is unclear, other than that they were glorious.
