For many years claims were made by strict creationists that human footprints or "giant man tracks" occur alongside dinosaur tracks in the limestone beds of the Paluxy River, near Glen Rose Texas. If true, such a finding would dramatically contradict the conventional geologic timetable, which holds that humans did not appear on earth until over 60 million years after the dinosaurs became extinct. However, the "man track" claims have not stood up to close scientific scrutiny, and have been abandoned even by most creationists. The supposed human tracks have involved a variety of phenomena, including forms of elongate (metatarsal) dinosaur tracks, erosional features, indistinct markings of uncertain origin, and some doctored and carved specimens (most of the latter on loose blocks of rock). This Web site provides a collection of articles reviewing the history of the controversy and evidence involved, articles on other alleged out-of-order fossils and artifacts, and information and links on dinosaur tracks in general.

I heard from a friend who was a strict creationist that they had found a boot encased in rock that was carbon dated to be as old as the dinosaurs. Unfortunately I have no information to back this up with like links / sources so I hesitate from even mentioning it. He was using it to try and prove that dating processes are obviously wrong, but if anyone knows more about this I'd love to know if its been debunked, is a myth, is a mystery, etc.
