So what would an Archie track look like?

Three-toed or two-toed. The 1st toe didn't touch the ground, and it's
not clear if the hyperextensible 2nd toe did.

Are there any 2-toed fossil tracks known?

I could not find any trace online, but one would think (looking at the ostrich foot) that theropods in xeric environments might take the same route, Archie-types aside...
