Specify your model, length, width, box, shank, vamp, heel, and tip for a precise, professional fit — it’s the custom pointe shoe you don’t have to special order.
Classic: For a “U” shaped foot: the metatarsal, midfoot, and heel are generously cut.
Sculpted: For a slightly tapered foot with a “waist”: cut with an ample metatarsal, a snug midfoot, and a narrow-medium heel.
For a tapered “V” shaped foot: cut with a slim metatarsal and a truly narrow midfoot and heel.
Gaynor Mindens usually fit one to one and a half sizes longer than your U.S. street shoe size. Not every Length is available in every Model. If you require a Length that is not available, try selecting a different Model.
Width fits the metatarsals and mid-foot. Not every Width is available in every size combination. If you require a Width that is not available, try changing your previous selections.
The Box fits the toes and metatarsals. Not every Box is available in every size combination. If you require a Box that is not available, try changing your previous selections.
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.
Most dancers are best served by our FeatherFlex, Supple, and ExtraFlex shanks. Very few dancers really need thr Hard shank.
The Deep vamp comes standard on all sizes and models, and is 1/4" (0.6 cm) longer than the Low vamp. If you are ordering a Low vamp, it will take longer to ship.
Dancers who wear a Gaynor Minden size 6 or shorter might prefer a Low vamp.
The High heel is 3/8" (1 cm) longer than the Low heel.
High heels are standard on our Classic and Sculpted models. You can still order a Low heel, but it will take longer to ship.
Low heels are standard on our Sleek models. You can still order a High heel, but it will take longer to ship.
Suede tips provide excellent durability and are standard.
For a completely vegan shoe, choose Satin tips! This is a special order and NOT RETURNABLE.
Our new Premium Weave Satin is currently being developed in other colors. Stay tuned for more options!
