An ankle of a fat person in which the the ankle and the calf appear seamless.
That girl must have weighed at least 500 pounds! Did you see the cankles on her?

An ankle of a very fat person that is so fat that it combines with the calf of the leg to create one large formation and it no longer has the definition of an ankle.

A leg or legs with much flesh on it, usually wobbling, that has no shapely definition.
The woman who weighed 400 pounds had legs that resembled tree trunks. Her cankles were a combination of her ankles and her calves all in one.

Contrary to popular belief, you don't really have to be fat to have cankles (though they are cute on chubbish girls), you just have to have boringly straight legs with no middleman, that is, no tapering between the calf and the heel. Looks less severe on skinny folk.
Alternate spelling: Kankle
Fat hasn't caused my cankle problem, I just have straight and boring legs.

When a woman`s calve muscles blend in with her ankles.

The area that should be an ankle, but instead skips right to the foot.
"Yo Michelle has mad cankles!"

Lack of narrowing of the lower calf where it meets the foot.
It's amazing that guy can get his shoes on with those cankles.

When there is no clear distinction as to where the ankle and calf are separated. It's most common in people that are heavy or big-boned. (meaning they usually shake the house when they walk, or waddle)
Where are Wanda's calf and ankle? Since I can't see them, she must have cankles!
