Do Any Jurists Allow Women To Expose Their Feet?

Aoa.

First, the question I've already asked- do any marji, past or contemporary, allow women to expose their feet before namehrams? I've been told that Ayatullah Saanei does- does anyone know for sure?

Also, in a long-ago thread about the hijab of feet, Macisaac stated that there have been three main positions among jurists about the extent of hijab vaajib on women:

1. It is obligatory to cover everything, including the face and hands

2. Obligatory to cover everything, save the face and hands

3. Obligatory to cover everything, except the face, hands and feet

AFAIK, modern-day marji pretty much fall under #2. Does anyone have any examples of #1 and 3

I would appreciate any authenticated replies. Most importantly though, my first question, ie, about the permissibility of showing (unadorned) feet according to any marja, alive or deceased. This is rather urgent for me.

Thank you

Salam. Since you asked, I am sure that there might be a limited number of scholars who allow women to expose their feet to namahram. The only one that I remember is Ayatollah Hosseini Nassab who said that it is allowed, but I did not see this on his website today, but in an old Esteftaat pdf file, so I would caution you that it might not be correct, and the old file does not explain if the question was all the time or when the woman is praying:

Hijab

Question:

I have a question concerning women having their feet uncovered in front of non-mahram men. Can a woman have her feet uncovered in the presence of non-mahram men?

Answer:

It is allowed to ankle only. http://www.hoseini.org/esteftaat-book-English.pdf

2. Obligatory to cover everything, save the face and hands

As you know, most of the scholars do not allow women to show their feet to namaharam:

Is it permissible for women to expose their feet the same way they are allowed to expose their hands?

Is it permissible for women to not cover their feet and leave them exposed?

Can you please give me a hadith about the limits of hijab for a woman?

1. It is obligatory to cover everything, including the face and hands

Proof that the woman's face is allowed to remain uncovered in the presence of non-mahrams:
