In brief: Ankle joint crepitus

The sound coming from your ankle joint can be as a result of the deterioration of the cartilage, or from ligamentous instability.

In brief: Orthotics

The popping may mean your ankle joint is not in the proper alignment.
See a specialist to examine the ankle and check the alignment with x rays. A custom orthotic may realign the ankle and reduce popping sound.
