Gaynor Minden pointe shoes feature a supportive satin exterior that encases a modern & innovative interior. The box & shank are made of advanced flexible polymers that do not weaken or soften with use, thus prolonging the life of the pointe shoes by 3-6 times that of traditional paste pointe shoes. Gaynor Minden pointe shoes also feature incredibly comfortable Poron® 4000 Performance Cushioning, reducing noise and negating the need for toe pads, while still allowing dancers to fully feel the floor. Highly customizable, Gaynor Minden pointe shoes feature of myriad of options to choose from, such as box shape, fabric cut, and shank strength, thus allowing all dancers to create the perfect shoe just for you!

NOTE: Because Gaynor Minden pointe shoes do not break-in, it is important to make sure that you can easily roll-through demi-pointe right away in a brand new pair.  If you can't roll-through demi-pointe easily, try a more flexible shank.

For customization inquires (such as changing the vamp or heel height, adding satin tips, etc.), please contact our Ecommerce Team at or call (847) 733-8460.
