Classic Fit Hard Pointe Shoes - Deep Vamp/High Heel


The model you select should reflect the general shape of your foot from the metatarsal to the heel. The Classic Fit has Gaynor Mindens original "U" shape where the metatarsal, midfoot, and heel are generously cut.

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.

The Deep vamp comes standard on all sizes and models, and is 1/4" (0.6 cm) longer than the Low vamp. The High heel is 3/8" (1 cm) longer than the Low heel. High heels are standard on our Classic and Sculpted models.


We unfortunately are unable to give sizing suggestions for pointe shoes without a fitting as a proper fit is of utmost importance. We highly recommend to always have a pointe shoe fitting appointment with a trained fitter.
