for the sake of your poor ankles I would probably play it safe and go with a low wedge. I have never tried cobble stone but I know pumps and gravel never mix well so I can’t imagine it is any easier. Good luck!

The other option is a chunky or cone heel.

@Berry-b.:  It depends on how wide the bottom is.

@Berry-b.:  chunky heel or a wedge, but only in patent leather so it’s still dressy.

@Berry-b.:  I would definitely do a wedge. Heels will be a nightmare.

@Berry-b.:  my town has a lot of cobble stones, and I wear 5 inch Louis out. While yeah, you have to be careful, it isn’t that big a deal. If I were going somewhere that was purely cobblestones throughout I would probably wear low (3.5 inches or smaller) heels; but if it’s just here and there I wouldn’t let it dictate my footwear choices.

I live near a cobble stoned area.  If the wedge of a shoe is really skinny, they aren’t much better than heels so I’d consider a wide wedge.
