Handmade in the U.S.A. 

*Please call our store to check size availability. While our website may state we have all sizes in-stock, this does not represent our inventory* 

Model: 

  • Classic: Our original "U" shape: the metatarsal, midfoot, and heel are generously cut.
  • Sculpted: For the foot in-between Classic and Sleek: Sculpted has an ample metatarsal, a snug midfoot, and a narrow-medium heel.
  • Sleek: For a tapered, "V"-shaped foot: Sleek has a slim metatarsal and a truly narrow midfoot and heel.

Length:

  • Gaynor Mindens usually fit one to one and a half sizes longer than your U.S. street shoe size. Please note not every length is available in every model. If you require a length that is not available, use the up arrow to change your previous selection.

Width:

  • Width fits the metatarsal and mid-foot area. Please note not every width is available in every model. If you require a width that is not available, use the up arrow to change your previous selections.

Box:

  • The box fits the toe and metatarsal area. Please note not every box is available in every combination. If you require a box that is not available, use the up arrow to change your previous selections.
  • #3: Medium and tapered
  • #4: Square and wide
  • #5: Square and wider

Shank:

  • Gaynor Minden shanks do not break in or soften, and all are equally durable and long-lasting. Make sure your new shoe is pliable enough to allow you to achieve a high demi-pointe easily.

    The number next to each shank name ranks the ease of roll-through — or demi-pointe — with 1 being the easiest, and 5 being the most difficult.

  • 3 - Supple - Medium (Pink)
  • 4 - Extra flex - Stiff (Yellow)
  • 5 - Hard - Extremely stiff (Green)

Vamp:

  • The Deep vamp is 1/4" (0.6 cm) longer than the Low vamp (previously our Regular vamp).

    Dancers who wear a Gaynor Minden size 7 or shorter often prefer a Low vamp. Sizes 7.5 or longer tend to prefer Deep vamps.

 

Heel:

  • The High heel is 3/8" (1 cm) longer than the Low heel (previously our Regular heel).

    Dancers who wear a Gaynor Minden size 7 or shorter often prefer a Low heel. Sizes 7.5 or longer tend to prefer High heels. The Low heel minimizes excess fabric when en pointe.
