My hip flips when I slightly turn around!

Ensure that the tracker on your left foot is using the “Left Foot” tracker role, and, also, that the tracker on your right foot is using using the “Right Foot” tracker role.

If you can find the menu to do so by opening SteamVR settings and going to the Manage Vive Trackers section under the Controllers tab.

You can figure out which tracker is which by clicking the “Identify” button.
