Length Guide

Do you have shoelaces that are too long and would like to know how to find the right length?
Do you constantly make a double loop to reduce the length?
So if you wonder, “How do I find the correct shoelace length ?”, read on.

To find the correct shoelace length, there are 3 methods, each has its advantages and disadvantages. Let's start with the easiest one: 

1. Take our length guide quiz

We are using all of the data from our customers and they shoes, to guide you towards the correct shoelace length. If you are looking for laces for sneakers, make sure to profit from out integrated database.

2. Measuring your existing shoelaces

Probably the easiest method is to thread the original laces out of your shoes and measure them. This way, you can assure that the new laces are the same length and fit. If the original laces were too long or too short, choose a shorter or longer length when buying new laces, or use one of the following 2 methods.

Often, original laces are kept very long. This is to ensure that every foot, no matter how wide or narrow, will fit into the shoe. You may know the problem when a shoe is very narrow, and you need to widen the lacing to get comfortably into the shoe. This is precisely the reason laces from brands tend to be sold or enclosed in longer lengths.

3. Using a standardized table

The most common method for finding the correct lace length is to use a standard table. There you choose the number of pairs of eyelets / holes and rapidly get a reasonably accurate length of laces for your shoes. However, you should bear in mind that the table does not tell you how far apart the holes / eyelets are on the shoes. This means that if the lacing is very tight or wide, the lace length recommended by the table could be wrong. Therefore, consider the given values as guidelines.

Eyelet Pairs Length
1-2 45 cm
3 45-60 cm
4 60-75 cm
5 75-90 cm
6 90-120 cm
7 120 cm
8 120-140 cm
9 140+ cm

If the distance between the 2 eyelets is rather long, choose the longer length option. Need more information? Click here
