Dear Not Fair
For those readers unfamiliar with the term 'cankles', here is abrief discription:
The area in affected female legs where the calf meets the foot in an abrupt, non-tapering terminus; medical cause: adipose (fatty) tissue surrounding the soleus tendon, probably congenital, worsened by weight gain and improved in appearance only by boots. From the English "calf" meaning wide portion of the lower leg, and "ankle" meaning slender joint of leg with foot.
Unfortunately there is not a lot that can be done apart from liposuction around the ankles which can have good results. Also, exercises which build and define the calf muscles can improve the appearance.
As far as toes that curl inward slightly go, again, not much that can be done. Correction would be surgical and only to be considered when the deformity becomes extremely painful or affects walking.
Sorry, no magic wand for these problems!
