Covering Ankle in Ihraam

Q: Can the Hajj/Ihram sandal have a strap around the ankle? My understanding is that the top of the foot and the area that the leg is joined to the foot ie the ankle should be uncovered.

A: Your understanding is correct. The upper bone and the ankle should not be covered when one is in the state of Ihraam.

And Allah knows best
