determining lengths

 

The only good way to know what length of shoelaces to get is to measure the shoelaces that are already in the shoes. If the length you need is not one of the standard options in the drop down box, you can easily get a non-standard length by adding an order note as explained here: CUSTOM LENGTHS. All shoelaces are custom made-to-order items anyway, so a non-standard length request adds no additional time to your order.

If you decide to go with a wider ribbon, say 7/8" or 1.5", it's usually a good idea to add a few inches to the length of the existing shoelaces since it takes more length to tie a bow with those wider shoelaces. For longer shoelaces (45 inches or more) you might just want to go up a full size, and for shorter laces (less than 45 inches) at least 4 to 5 extra inches will work.


For the most accurate length you really do want to get out the tape measure*, but an approximate rule of thumb on criss-cross lacing sneakers is:

2-3 eyelet rows = 25"
4 eyelet rows = 36"
5 eyelet rows = 45"
6 eyelet rows = 54"
7 eyelet rows = 63"
8-9 eyelet rows=72"

When in doubt, too long is better than too short! BTW - If you opt to guess instead of measure, and you guess wrong, scroll down to check out a couple ways to deal with shoelaces that are too short or too long.

 

*If you are into trivia and/or do not have a tape measure handy, a dollar bill is 6 inches long. :)
