n. 1) An aesthetically unfortunate physiological condition which leaves its victims with no discernible narrowing of the ankle between the calf and the foot. 2) An ankle which has no discernible narrowing from the calf to the foot. History: The word is derived a combination of the words calf and ankle. Victims of this condition are advised to avoid the following: ankle boots, ankle-strap shoes, anklets, ankle socks, ankle tattoos, high-top shoes, and any other footwear or leg wear that might draw attention to the cankle region.
"Kelly has a classic case of cankles -- her calves are the same width from knee to foot."
