Cankles.... calf/ankles

Does anyone else out there have "cankles"? I do, I HATE them. I cannot get rid of them. I cannot get nice boots to fit round them. I cannot wear nice dainty shoes. I cannot ever feel comforatble wearing a skirt. They expand during the day and by evening I pretty much have to surgically remove my socks!

I am not overweight and I just cannot shift these hideous heavy legs..... anyone offer any advice??

TIA x

I do have ankles but my calfs (calves?) balloon out immediately above them into big, meaty legs - and I'm not otherwise overweight either. It's very frustrating. As to nice boots: have you tried Duo? I was a boot-free zone until I discovered this company.

yes - i have a pair of duo boots. they are great. i also can't wear skirts but i am slim. so annoying. i have legs like tree trunks.
