The perfect pointe shoe for dancers in-between the Classic Fit & Sleek Fit, the Sculpted Fit Pointe Shoe by Gaynor Minden has an hourglass shape from the metatarsal area through to the heel, featuring an amply cut metatarsal, fitted mid-foot, and medium heel. The shank is pre-arched, and the elastic drawstring ties at the side instead of the front, creating a smooth look. Due to the structured nature of the fabric of the Sculpted Fit, we recommend getting a softer shank that normal (for example, if you have previously gotten a FeatherFlex shank in a Classic or Sleek Fit, we'd recommend trying the more flexible Pianissimo shank in the Sculpted Fit).
Shank: Pianissimo (purple bag, extremely flexible)
Box Shapes: #3 (tapered), #3+ (moderately tapered), #4 (slightly tapered), or #5 (square)
Widths: Narrow, Medium, or Wide
Sizing: approximately 1 size up from women's street shoe size; to determine which style & size is right for you, please schedule a fitting at either one of our store locations.
Ribbon & elastic sold separately.
About Gaynor Minden Pointe Shoes
Gaynor Minden pointe shoes feature a classically beautiful pink 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 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 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.
Designed in New York; hand-made in Europe.
