The earliest footprints showing evidence of modern human foot anatomy and gait have been unearthed in Kenya.



The 1.5-million-year-old footprints display signs of a pronounced arch and short, aligned toes, in contrast to older footprints.

The size and spacing of the Kenyan markings - attributed to Homo erectus - reflect the height, weight, and walking style of modern humans.

what makes me laugh (as a creationist) is when there are reports about human footprints being found, but because of the geological time column they can't possibly be human because we "know" humans didn't exist at that time. If it weren't for the "age" of the rocks there'd be no doubt they were human.
