The opposite of pigeon toed, or in-toeing, is called out-toeing. Both in-toeing and out-toeing occur in infants and children and is usually a normal variant. Out-toeing is uncommon and occurs far less frequently than pigeon-toe. If out-toeing occurs when a child first begins to walk, it normally dissipates within a year.
