Running was invented by running shoe companies to sell more running shoes.

An article by Smithsonian Magazine and research published by NCBI prove that the activity of running existed before the creation of running shoes.

According to the research published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) on 11 July 2016, and the article published by the National Geographic on 17 November 2019, the natural human habit of running is a result of evolutionary changes originating from hunting activities.

As per the article published by Smithsonian Magazine on 27 July 2015, running shoes are being crafted for over 200 years. The oldest existing shoe meant to be used for running dates back to the early 1860s and has been a part of the Brooklyn Museum show called 'The Rise of Sneaker Culture.'
