The hips rising too fast is definitely part of the problem, but also (and related), I think your knees are getting a little too straight before the second pull (if you keep your chest up more in the pull so that your arms are still about vertical when the bar reaches the knee, this should take care of itself).

I like the feet moving - not high, but up enough that they can reconnect actively flat against the floor in the right position. Part of your feet not moving is likely related to the above - that hip rise tends to make the finish more hip-centric and reduce the upward pop of the legs that helps foot movement.
