“Gaynor Minden pointe shoes are high quality, professional ballet footwear, ideally suited for beginners as well as experienced dancers.

In these shoes, it is possible to achieve a truly perfect fit, thus minimizing injuries and general discomfort. The shoes are stable, perfectly balanced, and create a beautiful line of the foot.” 

-Marina Leonova, November 2007

For twenty years, Marina Leonova was a leading ballerina with the Kremlin Palace and Bolshoi Ballet companies. At the Moscow State Academy of Choreography, which is the school of the Bolshoi Ballet, she has been a Professor on the Faculty of Classical Dance, a Vice-President on Creative Work, a President of the Academy, and — since 1996 — Director. She is a recipient of the prestigious National Artist of Russia award.

      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.
