The really weak, spasticated ankles many young ladies inherit whilst in high heels after a couple of drinks. Most often seen at weddings or balls and oft resulting in grazed knees and/or tearful girls.
Kate really found her spankles at the wedding on Saturday, after a few drinks they buckled and she went down like a sack o potatoes.
An severely obese person has "spankles" when a roll of fat at their ankles separates their legs from their feet. Very tight foot wear can cause a "spankling" effect on a moderately large person, where the flesh folds over the tops and backs of the shoes. Spankles are an undesirable condition which can be prevented with regular diet, exercise, and appropriate footwear. The same condition at the wrists may be called "sprists" or "spuh-wrists".
1. Person A: Wow! Gina's gained a ton of weight.

Person A: Looks like she's wearing flesh pants!
2. Young Bride: OMG! I can't wear these for my wedding! They're so tight they're giving me spankles!
Friend: Yeah, they look hella nasty.
