Les Ballets de Monte Carlo
“I started wearing Gaynor Minden pointe shoes for many reasons. Firstly, they last so much longer than traditional pointe shoes, so I don’t need to be constantly sewing new pairs or worrying about them not lasting through a three-act ballet. Secondly, the pliable shank and box allow me to jump with more ease, while still staying supportive enough for pointe work and partnering. In addition, the sleek shape of the box helps refine my leg line, unlike the bulkiness of a traditional pointe shoe. Lastly, they are significantly kinder to my toes, which make me more comfortable during long rehearsal days. In fact, I now no longer need to wear toe pads!”
Victoria has worn Gaynor Minden pointe shoes since 2016.
