There are a few different ways to find the correct length of shoelaces for your shoes.
- Measure your old shoelaces: One option is to measure your old shoelaces to get an idea of the length you need. To do this, lay the shoelace flat and measure it from end to end, including any aglets (the decorative caps on the ends of the shoelaces). This measurement can give you a good starting point for finding a new pair of shoelaces.
- If you are unable to measure the length of the lace you want to replace use our shoelaces length chart.
3. Use our rough guide below to determine the length of laces you will require.
27” (68 cm) – Kids Low Top shoes/sneakers (generally around ages 5-6).
39″ (100 cm) – Kids High Top/Junior Low Top (Up to middle school converse low tops), Adults for shoes with 4-5 eyelets. This length is also perfect for traditional Vans, as the eyelets tend to be closer together.
47″ (120 cm) – Junior Low Tops/ Adult Low Top – Converse Low tops for teens and up – for shoes with 5-6 eyelets. Also suitable for high top shoes for Junior kids.
55″ (140 cm) – Adult High Top /High Tops or large feet!
63in (160cm) – Men Adult High Tops with 8-9 pair of eyelets
We hope these suggestions help you find the correct length of shoelaces for your shoes, however, we highly recommend you measure your existing shoelaces.
If you are still unsure, you can always contact the retailer or manufacturer for more specific sizing information. Good luck!
HOW TO COUNT EYELETS ON ANY SHOES?
Count the number of eyelets on your shoes (the holes which your laces thread into on the shoe) and divide by two. This will give you the number of eyelets pairs you have.
