7 Strappy Sandals That Will Hide Your Cankles (PHOTOS)

sandals'Tis the season of stems, sandals, and stilettos, but you know what I just hate about the summer? All those leg workouts I wish I did.

While I should've been in the gym workin' on my fitness all winter long, I was in the kitchen, snacking on cookies, cannolis & cupcakes -- and now instead of happily showing off my lean legs, I'm worried everyone is going to notice (gulp) ... my cankles.

Oh, cankles. AKA calves that don't naturally thin out at your ankles .. AKA 'fat' ankles. Eek! I'll admit, it's not a common fashion faux paus, but for me, it's a big worry. I have muscular legs so summer always comes with anxiety for me. Go on & add in strappy summer sandals and you see my fears now, don'tya?

Most fashionistas avoid the ankle strap like the bubonic plague, but I'm all for throwing caution to the wind -- and you should too. 

Check out these seven ankle straps to shop for that'll give you long and lean legs:

Yeah, wyotechangel. America is fat because of sandals that camouflage cankles.

For some reason I feel that the low sandals would just make cankles look fatter.

It would have been better with real people and real photos.

Obviously the person that wrote this article and picked these sandals does NOT have cankles! These are allllll horrible choices. Trust me.....I was cursed with almost no legs.....just cankles and a butt!

Cankles are not necessarily because someone is fat. I'm not overweight at all and I have them. They're also genetic. So maybe instead of being rude, you should do some research. And based on your picture AND comment, you have things that could be worked on as well.
