1) What is the difference between Europa and Lyra?
The primary differences are the satin and soling materials:
Lyra is made with Premium Weave satin, a proprietary blend of yarns, woven in Italy and exclusive to Gaynor Minden. Flexibility and roll-through are further enhanced by Lyra’s pliable vegan outer sole.
Europa is made with robust Italian satin for firm wraparound support to the entire foot. A leather sole enhances support underfoot even further.Many dancers love the robust support that Europa provides.
But other dancers value the flexibility and enhanced forefoot control of Lyra. Now we can offer them a choice.
2) What size Lyra should I order?
