See our discussion of “Hotfoot and Lightfooted“.
I originally listed this word at “lightfoot”, imagining that “lightfooted” derived from it, but no, “light-footed” has its own OED entry which speaks of the lack of heaviness of the foot in question. It is spelled in the OED examples with a space, a hyphen, or no space between the “light” and “foot” elements.
Having a light foot; treading lightly, active, nimble.
