Pointe shoes perform a remarkable job — enduring tremendous forces and repeated strains, all the while appearing as dainty and delicate as the ballerina herself. Gaynor Minden retains the classic beauty of lustrous pink satin and elegant tapered lines, but with a completely modernized interior to meet the needs of today’s athletic dancers. They are made with expert American hand-craftsmanship, the most up-to-date athletic materials, and first-hand knowledge of ballet. The designer and almost the entire team are former dancers. Manufactured in Lawrence, Massachusetts.
For a pointe shoe to look, feel, and function just right it must be fitted just right. Our ingenious fitting system lets every dancer obtain that professional, customized fit.
You get to determine the seven crucial specifications that govern fit: model, length, width, box, shank, vamp, and heel. Please take the time to understand your options.
1) Our shanks and boxes don’t soften. Any shoe that is too stiff could do the work for you and allow you to cheat. Be sure you love the pliability of your shoes when they are new because it will not change.
2) Our satin hardly stretches at all — allow a little extra length (1/4″ pinch at the drawstring casing when en pointe).
