European "Invisible" Elastic

Over "there," the ballerinas appear to be dancing in shoes secured only by satin ribbon, and they also appear to have not the slightest worry about their shoes slipping off.
The "secret" is Invisible Elastic,
s-t-r-e-t-c-h-y, lace-like material that virtually disappears next to tights. Works for technique slippers, too.
Imported European "Invisible"
Pink Elastic.

More gripping. Less griping.
The extraordinarily useful Gaynor Minden Heel Gripper actually keeps your shoes on your heels.
The textured surface really holds your foot.
The peel-and-stick backing keeps gripper locked in place.
And, by filling in the extra space around your heel, it makes the back of the shoe beautifully smooth, sleek, and free of lines and wrinkles. No Botox required.
(Especially helpful for dancers with narrow heels.)

Got a big space (smaller than the Grand Canyon, but still) between your big toe and your second toe? And is that second toe by any chance on the long side?
That’s why we developed the adjustable toe stabilizer. You customize it. You decide what length and this is the crucial part what width suits your own anatomy. It’s simple just stick the pieces together until you’ve reached your desired width, snip, and tape in place. Toe Stabilizers. Instructions included.

Totally Toes Fitting Kit

Is Pain the Necessary Price of Greatness?
Wanting comfort doesn't make you a bad person.
Gaynor Minden's Totally Toes Fitting Kit makes you feel like you've been reborn with custom-made ballerina feet. A breakthrough (it's actually patented) in pointe shoe fit and comfort.
No comparison to lamb's wool, bulky toe pads, make-up sponges, or any of those other antiquated desperation measures.

  • Longer 2nd toe (a.k.a. Morton's Foot)? Cool Blue Gel Crescents redistribute the weight off of that poor, vulnerable toe.
  • Big toe taking all the abuse? Cool Blue Gel Ovals. Instant relief. And a certain comforting "give."
  • Sensitive big toe nails? Try ingenious "Mushroom" Micro-pads. Their only job in life is to protect that crucial ½-inch of your body. Made of real *Poron®.
  • Sliding down into the box? Stop the pain and chafe right now. Poron®* Dynamic Box Liners hold your foot up and out of the box on pointe (actually you have to hold yourself up, but these will help keep you there). Then, the moment you're down, they compress so you can truly spread your foot. That's the "dynamic" part. Amazingly effective. Puts the joy back in jumping.

Totally Toes Fitting Kit. Contains one pair each Cool Blue Gel Crescents, Cool Blue Gel Ovals, "Mushroom" Micro-pads, Dynamic Box Liners and clear, illustrated instructions.

* Real Rogers Corp. Poron® has the American Podiatric Medical Association Seal of Acceptance.

Vamp Elastic

Stop feeling sorry for dancers born with gorgeous arches.
Sympathy no longer needed.
Problem solved.
Gaynor Minden's ingeniously simple Vamp Elastic eliminates the curse of "going over too far" or "popping out"...the punishments, once, for those born with gorgeous arches.
The delay and expense of a remedial special-order vamp is now unnecessary. Just stitch Vamp Elastic in the throat of your shoe and you'll get the same kind of extra support that a deeper vamp would provide—with no compromise of demi-pointe flexibility, either. Instructions included.
