Yes there are, even though nobody has stepped on the lunar surface since the last Apollo mission in 1972. The footsteps will be there for many years to come too. The Moon is geologically dead so the marks won’t be wiped out by earthquakes or volcanoes. Neither is there any wind to disturb them or rain to erode them.
