What’s the difference …… and why it matters.

 

Gaynor Minden pointe shoes are said to last three to six times longer than traditionally made pointe shoes.

 

If you have not been fitted with Gaynor Minden pointe shoes we suggest that you do have a professional in-store pointe fitting.

 

Ribbons sold separately

 

Note:
We strongly recommend a complete and professional pointe shoe fitting at Dance Desire before purchasing any pointe shoes.

 

If your sizing or style is not listed here please contact us.
