Gaynor Minden pointe shoes last 2-4 times longer than traditionally made pointe shoes. The parts that provide support for the dancer, the shank and toe box, are made from advanced flexible polymers.
These pointe shoes are made in Gaynor Minden's new production facility in Europe. The satin is slightly more supportive than the USA-made shoes. We recommend coming in for a fitting so that you can make sure of correct sizing in the new production shoes. We will be adding to this product's options as we sell through our USA-made shoes.
