Overly-pretentious middle-schoolers who think they're the shiz. The term is often used by freshmen or older students who are happy to be out of there, and know that the younger kid in question is really not that cool.
8th grader: Haa, I'm at the top of the school now.

Freshman: Shut the hell up, you ankle-biter. There are still 4 grades worth of students who're older than you.

8th grader: I don't care I'm still the shiz.

Ridiculously tight legged jeans. Another term for skinny jeans. They were most commonly worn by people belonging to the "punk" genre back when punk WAS actually punk. Now can be found on almost every femininely slender legged teen.
Evan: WOW! now those are some seriously tight ankle biters Todd. Are you really gonna try and tell me those are comfortable to wear?

Todd: Gotta look good for my (insert genres of music some asshole mashed together) gig tonight. Gonna be some hot ladies there that I'm gonna try and hook up with!!

Evan: Um....when they're 16 and under we call them "girls", not "ladies" Todd.
