The pivots of your Red reverse foot chain aren't in the exact same place as the regular bone chain. They look like they are pretty close, but they are just far enough apart to cause the wobble. To fix it I took these steps:

1. I deleted the 3 IK chain objects. (The blue crosses)
2. In the Hierarchy panel I turned on Don't Affect Children
3. In the viewport I selected Bone007 and used the Align tool and selected Bone005. The Align options were X, Y, and Z Position checked and Pivot Point to Pivot Point selected.
4. I did the same for Bone008 to Bone004, and Bone009 to Bone003.
5. I recreated the IK chains and linked them to the corresponding bones.

Works smooth for me now.

Here you go man. I also created the reverse foot how I typically set it up using splines as controllers.
