“I highly recommend the Gaynor Minden pointe shoe for the training of young dancers — it is not only the professional who enjoys its benefits. It supports the foot in such a way that the dancer is better able to feel and attain correct alignment on pointe.”

-Mignon Furman, May 2006

      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.
