Should their feet be somewhat hoof-like? I get that they were semi-aquatic, but I figured they be along the lines of these: markc1.typepad.com/.a/6a00d834…

No, the distal phalanx of Archaeocetes and hippopotamus markedly different - in Pakicetines distal phalanx are narrow and elongated - perhaps it was something similar to a narrow but hard nail.

Ah I see! That is interesting that they retain the archaic trait from ancestral hoof mammals and almost as if there was parallel evolution going on with quadruped artiodactyls.

These whales have part of the main morphological features which define the Artiodactyla. We can say that it was an "otter-like" semi-aquatic artiodactyls

I know that, what I am saying is that they did not evolve the similar structures seen in hippos.
