'Drag (one's) heels' = lê bước -> nghĩa là di chuyển chậm và do dự/lừng khừng vì không muốn làm gì.

Ví dụ
During a two-hour Brexit discussion over lunch among the EU27 heads of state and government, Macron told his fellow leaders that the prime minister should not be allowed to drag her heels. The pressure for a result needed to be increased.

"I think the president will drag his heels, will delay providing the information as long as he can, and then fight in court," Rosenthal said, predicting that, eventually, "even this US Supreme Court would find in favor of the Democrats."

“It comes as no shock that recent reviews have highlighted the need for increased community-care settings to support autistic and learning disabilities patients. The minister continues to drag her heels in addressing these fundamental issues. It is high time she took measures to rectify the failings in autism (tự kỷ) treatment and listened to the professionals.”
