It is a derivative of cankles but much more goliath. It is basically a womans (or mans) figure that starts at their shoulders and goes straight to their feet without any
deviation much like a 2X4 but in this case a 90X90.

To shank someone in the ankle.
I was watching some dumb horror movie last night and the one girl had a knife while hiding under her bed. The killer walked right past her and she didn't move! Bitch should've shankled him when she had the chance because she was a goner later.

shankle- the part of the body where the shin meets the ankle.
My shankle hurts from playing too much soccer.

I think I've pulled my shankle from rolling my toes so much in marching band.

The winner of the butt kicking contest is the person with the dirtiest shankle.

Shorts that are to big and to long that all you see on the person wearing the shorts are there ankles - sometimes accompanied with socks and shoes

shorts + ankles = shankles
Check him out - Whats the point of wearing shorts if all you can see is his ankles.
I bet them shankles do not keep him cool on this hot day.
