In brief: Yes

Also called juvenile hallux abducto valgus, bunions can occur in the pediatric population.
These are more commonly due genetics and biomechanics rather than poor shoes.

In brief: Yes

It is called juvenile hallux abducto valgus.
This can occur in children due to an increased laxity of the joints leading to an early abnormal deviation of the big toe. This is usually a genetically acquired condition which can progress rapidly with environmental factors such as tight shoes.
