Gaynor Mindens usually fit one to one and a half sizes longer than your U.S. street shoe size. Please note not every length is available in every model. If you require a length that is not available, use the up arrow to change your previous selection.
Gaynor Minden shanks do not break in or soften, and all are equally durable and long-lasting. Make sure your new shoe is pliable enough to allow you to achieve a high demi-pointe easily. Each shank name ranks the ease of roll-through — or demi-pointe — with 1 being the easiest, and 5 being the most difficult.
