Satin Colors


Our lustrous satin is now available in a range of colors in addition to our traditional peachy-pink: Black, Red, White, Cappuccino, Mocha, and Espresso.

Black, Red, and White come ready for the stage, or use the White as a base if a more unusual color is needed for a costume.

Cappuccino, Mocha, and Espresso make it so much easier to complement a wide range of skin tones. They work well as a base for further customization, but also work for many dancers as-is.

Matching tights, ribbons, and elastic are available for Pink, Cappuccino, Mocha, and Espresso satins. Matching ribbon and elastic are available for White satin.

From Daphne Lee (left), Gaynor Minden Artist and dancer with Dance Theatre of Harlem: “Gaynor Minden has been there for me as an artist and as a person; they have made me feel included with their vision and brand. The pointe shoes are designed to be forgotten, while at the same time showcasing my technical ability. I love seeing how they celebrate the next generation of dancers socially while supporting and encouraging dancers of all shades to feel included in the ballet world.”


From Erica Lall, American Ballet Theater: “I could not ask for a better celebration of being a dancer of color than to be surprised by Gaynor Minden with a pointe shoe shade that is perfect for me!”


From Annellyse Munroe, Ailey II Alum: “Gaynor Minden is reaching dancers where it counts. Now—because the color of my Gaynors compliments my skin tone—I no longer have to dye my shoes. This leaves me with a cheerful smile each time I wear them, and it allows me to spend more time focused on my work, which is ultimately to dance with ease, comfort, elegance, and grace. I truly admire the fact that Gaynor Minden is appealing to the diverse world of dancers!”

      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.
