Pointe shoe quiz October 8, 2010

What maker’s shoes is the dancer in pink wearing?

And, what are your reasons for choosing that maker?


  1. I'm going to fathom a guess and say Gaynor Minden because there is no visible drawstring in the vamp.

  2. Hi Jill,

    Gaynors ?

    Paul. :)

  3. MMmm Jill,
    They look like GM's. The reasons :
    No feathers ... one single fold to outer sole,
    Slight Stage grim in two parrell lines ,
    Side Quarter panel drawstring, No drawstring at Vamp, Stiching along drawstring material (at Vamp) matches known Gaynor Design,
    Also, The protusion of the pinkey toe at the quarter panel is a indication. That the style of the box. for a big toe /Morton or second toe comination .While on pointe for this dancer would have better support. If a narrower box was used.
    Well how did I do?

  4. Yes! Three correct answers! Good for you!!!

  5. It's a miracle! I literally screamed out, "Yes!" to getting it right.


  6. Hi Jill,

    I didn't fully answer your original question (me = dur moment), but I chose Gaynor's due colouring/radiance of light coming from the shoes.

    The shape also reminded me of past Gaynor pictures you've posted...

    Another great picture by the way.
