Principal Dancer - National Ballet of Portugal

“It began with a suggestion from a friend, also a Gaynor Minden Artist. We danced together in a gala, and I was complaining about how shoes can change just from bringing them on a plane. She told me that with Gaynor Minden I wouldn’t have those issues, so I decided to try them.

It took some time to find the right ones, but since I started working with them I’ve become a totally different ballerina! I have a feeling of trusting my pointe shoes completely while I’m dancing, not being afraid that they might break in the middle of a pas de deux. And they are so light, that jumping is heaven and they look great on my feet. I feel that I improved to a higher level with them!”

      The best way to achieve a perfect pointe shoe fit is to go in person to an experienced fitter who maintains a large inventory so you can try many different options. We encourage you to use the worldwide Store Locator on this page to find a fitter near you.

      No store can carry every Gaynor Minden product, so call first.

      If no results are returned, drag or zoom to find the nearest location to you. If you are not able to find a store near you, don’t worry! We will do our best to fit you online.

      A short note on a sensitive subject: We believe that when a fitter in a dancewear store devotes time and sincere effort to helping a dancer find the right shoe, then that store deserves the sale. Gaynor Minden urges dancers to honor the work of stores’ fitters.
