Gaynor Minden

Gaynor Minden Pointe shoes are on the feet of some of the world's most extraordinary dancers at over 200 major professional companies. Because they're recommended for students by indisputably great teachers. They were invented by a dancer. And they're the only pointe shoes made from modern materials so they can last 3 to 5 times longer. They are quiet, and they were designed for the highest and most daring level of artistic achievement.

Dancers are artists who deserve no less than the very best that human intelligence and imagination can deliver.

To truly serve dancers well, it is essential to recognize that they are athletes as well as artists and that the dancer's body is her instrument. Gaynor Minden dedicates itself to creating and producing products which respect the instrument, which benefit the artist, and which enhance the art.

While always respecting tradition, our designs boldly innovate. We seek out the finest materials—both time-honored and newly developed—and we manufacture to the highest standards. We recruit the most experienced dancers, teachers, and dance medicine experts as our advisors.
