from Journal of Foot and Ankle Research

As discrete factors, age, body mass, and joint flexibility have each been associated with variance in paediatric foot posture. In a study of 835 Austrian children age 3 to 6 years, Pfeiffer reported that age, body weight and gender correlated with flat foot posture; with younger, heavier boys having flatter feet.
