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.

When the calves and ankles of a person's feet merge into a straight line with no distinction of which is which.
Fat people usually have cankles, but it can also occur with anyone.
(This is not to be confused with someone having thick ankles. If someone has thick ankles they still have a curve in their leg, but with cankles, the front view of their foot is completely straight.)
Look at that fat lady and her cankles!

My boyfriend says I have cankles.

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.

2)If anybody finds cankles attractive, something is seriously wrong with you.
