Who invented walking first time and when?
Around four million years ago, animals began walking in the manner in which people do today.
And three million years ago, in Kenya, footprints revealed walking patterns that were very comparable to those of modern people.
Since then, people have evolved several methods of walking and discovered a variety of purposes for them.

How did walking come to be invented?
Humans walking on two legs was very indeed invented to free up our hands for usage.
This was critical in human development because it enabled us to use fire to cook food, building our sophisticated brain metabolism.

Racewalking, speed walking, power walking, and Afghan walking were all invented to demonstrate how quickly people can walk.
