Add another joint below your root with four joints extending sideways from that. Now you can animate your foot and and parts of it seperately :). But you will need to detach your skin, rebuild your skeleton and reskin again. Apart from that there is only way of using a blendshape or the jiggle deformer to make your base wiggle (Itīs no joke, it really is called like that, hehe)

good luck
