Answer:

Yes, easy! One word: Gaiters! Several companies make little stretchy ankle gaiters, designed to fit snug over running shoes and make a pebble- and sand-proof seal over the tops of your boots. My favorites happen to be these Montbell gaiters. They fit great and create a low profile over any light hikers or trail runners, and they breathe well, so you’re feet don’t get too sweaty.
