CLASSIC Gaynor Minden Pointe Shoe

The original "U" shape: the metatarsal, midfoot, and heel are generously cut.

Gaynor Mindens cost less to use than other brands because they last an average of 3-6 times longer

Elastomerics are highly specialized materials, engineered for extraordinary flexibility, resilience, and strength, so naturally they are more costly than paper and paste used by other brands.

Gaynor Minden pointe shoes are hand made in Europe.

Because an elastomeric box doesn’t weaken or deform, it both lasts longer and promotes correct alignment. A 1997 study at the Biomechanics Lab at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst reported that even highly trained dancers were better aligned in Gaynor Mindens than in traditionally made pointe shoes. Why? Because a traditionally made box often wears unevenly, with greater wear under the big toe. This makes the platform uneven, which can contribute to sickling and winging on pointe. A box that never deforms makes it harder to stand incorrectly.  Proper alignment is essential for good technique, correct muscular development, and for protecting joints from injury.
