Gaynor Minden Pointe Shoes are handmade using a unique manufacturing process that is both state-of-the-art athletic shoe science and traditional, artisanal craftsmanship. The shanks and boxes are made from a flexible polymer material that never weakens, laboratory tested to withstand over 250,000 relevés! To the dancer, this means that these pointe shoes will hold their shape more consistently and last much longer than other brands.
