Handmade in Europe!

Gaynor Minden pointe shoes are completely different from other pointe shoes. They have a beautiful classic look on the outside, but a fully modernized interior to meet the needs of today's athletic dancers. The shanks and boxes are made from polymers prized for extraordinary flexibility, strength, and resilience. Gaynor Minden pointe shoes have been tested to withstand hundreds of thousands of releves without any weakening or deformation of the shank or box. Shanks are available in five different variations of stiffness to ensure appropriate support for dancers at all levels. Textured Poron? linings are treated with silver ion and are slightly textured to help prevent the shoe from sliding along the foot. The linings absorb impact, noise, and make the shoes incredibly comfortable.

Check your fit carefully and consider a softer shank. Gaynor Minden's new Italian satin is slightly more supportive and creates the sensation of a snugger fit. For even greater durability, Gaynor Minden pointe shoes now feature suede tips!

Sculpted Fit features an ample metatarsal, a snug midfoot, a narrow-medium heel.

Sleek Fit features a slim metatarsal and truly narrow midfoot and heel.

Classic Fit features a generously cut metatarsal, midfoot, and heel.

    I was blessed with bendy feet, unfortunately, they kill shoes rather quickly. I am happy to have found a pair of shoes that are not only long-lasting but a flattering fit as well! If you struggle with shoes dying quickly, I'd recommend trying these shoes.

    My daughter has tried many different pointe shoes, and these are the best fit. The ones with the softer shank fit her better, and she hoped these would provide extra support with the same fit, but the softer ones were better. Overall great shoes, though, and they last longer than some others she has tried.

    My daughter loves the way her feet look in these shoes. They fit her great and she gets on the box easily. Only problem is they are supposed to last longer than most shoes because of the thermoplastic, but after wearing them for a couple of weeks she told me today they're dead already. More expensive to replace if they aren't going to last any longer.

    My daughter has been on pointe for over four years. She has terrible bunions on both feet. She was having a difficult time finding pointe shoes that not only supported her feet, but lasted more than a couple of weeks before giving out. These shoes not only give her the support she needs, but they look fantastic! She reports that she no longer feels bunion pains even after long rehearsals! And the great part? Well, they last a little longer and we're replacing fewer pointe shoes in a year. Every little bit helps!

    I have tried every brand of pointe shoes, and by far, Gaynor Minden pointe shoes have surpassed all of the other brands in comfort and especially durability. There are so many different combinations of customization that you will always be able to find the perfect pair for you. Yes, they are more expensive, though they last for twice as long as regular pointe shoes.
