Heavy squatting, and deadlifting will work them to an extent, but doing direct work will help with your ankle stability and strength.
I like to think of my lower leg along the same lines as my forearms. Grip work for your forearms is something a lot of people fail to see the light about.
Good forearm, and lower leg development will help with a lot of other lifts.
