|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.|
Because Gaynor Minden pointe shoes do not deteriorate or lose their shape, they must never be fitted too tight, too wide, or too stiff. You can achieve a customized fitting by selecting length, width, box, shank, vamp, and heel specifications. The width refers to the midfoot area, behind the box. You can now select from four box options, from very narrow and tapered to the new widest and square option, the #5 box.
