“So much is expected of dancers today, and the Gaynor Minden pointe shoe is an excellent tool for their training at all levels. As a former professional dancer and now a teacher, I have found that Gaynor Minden pointe shoes are supple, encouraging a beautiful rolling-through of the feet, and at the same time durable — perfect for building strength. They mold wonderfully to the foot, promoting a lovely line.”
-Victoria Mazarelli, 2007
