Gaynor Minden was established in 1993 and quickly earned itself a reputation as a bit of a ballet rule breaker. While the original Gaynor’s were build with stiff shanks, they now offer a huge range of pointe shoe options including ultra flexible shanks, boxes, narrow heels, longer sizes, built in suede tips etc. They have also come to the table with the release of their ‘base’ pointe shoes in the colours ‘cappuccino’ and ‘espresso’. These are set to be released in February 2017 – and already there is huge anticipation! Gaynor Minden is leading the diversity in dance apparel movement at the moment, others will be sure to follow.
