Jeremy DeSilva: First Steps: The evolution of the human foot.

Upright walking (bipedalism) is a unique human locomotion with deep evolutionary roots. Unsurprisingly then, our foot is modified to efficiently navigate the world on our legs. However the path and pace by which the human foot evolved has been unclear. In the last two decades, paleoanthropologists have quadrupled the foot fossil record, providing fresh new insight into foot evolution and revealing bipedal diversity in early hominins.
