I think its a real footprint because it looks like a footprint.

I'm no expert on this sort of thing, but I took some time to find some pictures of human foot prints in mud and the difference seems pretty obvious.
The edges in the 290 million year old print are almost cartoonishly perfect. In most of the real footprints the displacement of the foots pressure on the mud causes it to bulge out on the sides, and the spaces between the toes are not so pronounced.
the picture is actually larger than that, ATS resized it, but if you right click and select view image you can see the larger more detailed pic.
