In brief: Multiple factors

Congenital club foot ccf can occur as an isolated event or as part of a syndrome.
Current thinking includes the influence of an autosomal dominent gene which is expressed ~33% , making it possible to skip generations without an affected carrier. Incidence 11/10000 (iowa)m>f, increased if mother smokes in pregnancy.See http://www.Omim.Org/entry/119800.

In brief: Pretty much, yes.

We know that the incidence of clubfoot is about 1:1000 in an average U.
S. Population. It is higher within certain ethnic groups, such as japanese (1:500) and hawaiian islanders (1:250). However, it is more difficult to predict the incidence along particular family lines. Many children are born with clubfoot in which there is no specific history of the deformity in recent family generations.
