Ultimate New Balance Shoelace Length Guide

This is a definitive shoelace length guide for every type of New Balance sneaker. From iconic 574s to cutting-edge Fresh Foams, this comprehensive resource of shoelaces length unlocks the perfect fit for all your NB kicks.

Shoelaces Length for New Balance Lifestyle Shoes

Most New Balance lifestyle sneakers use standard 6 eyelets on each side, so 45-47″ shoelaces will be the perfect length. Just slip, knot, and conquer the day!

Here are a few exceptions to keep in mind:

  • NB Numeric Tiago Lemos 1010 and MADE in UK 576: These stylish low-tops have 5 eyelets, so use shorter 39″ laces.
  • NB Numeric 480 High and ALD x New Balance 650R: These high-top sneakers need longer laces. Opt for 55″ laces to lace all the way up!
  • CAYL x New Balance 610T: The eyelets on these sneakers are closer together, so 39″ laces will give you the perfect fit without any excess flapping.

Shoelaces Length Recommendations Based on Eyelet Count for New Balance Sneakers

This guide helps you to find the perfect shoelace length for your New Balance sneakers. Just match the right laces to your specific shoe model based on its eyelet count (on each side).

3 eyelets 30″ – 33″
4-5 eyelets 38″ – 40″
5-6 eyelets 45″ – 47″

Simply find your New Balance sneakers’ eyelet count on the table and match it to the recommended lace length! This eliminates the risk of buying laces that are too short or too long, ensuring a secure and comfortable fit for your favorite kicks.

Shoelaces Length for New Balance Running Shoes

Selecting the ideal shoelace length for New Balance running shoes isn’t just about aesthetics; it plays a pivotal role in comfort and performance during runs. Through my journey of finding the perfect fit, I’ve realized that the number of eyelets, combined with personal lacing techniques, can significantly influence the lace length you’ll need. While some runners prefer a snug fit with shorter laces for a firm grip, others opt for slightly longer laces, allowing for flexibility and easy adjustments. The fascinating variety among New Balance models, each with its unique design and eyelet count, calls for a thoughtful approach to choosing laces, ensuring both the runner’s comfort and the shoe’s functionality are in perfect harmony.

In this guide, I delve deep into each model, providing insights and recommendations to help you pinpoint the precise lace length needed to harmonize your New Balance sneakers with your personal style and running needs.

* If you’re unsure about your eyelet count, consult your New Balance sneakers’ product description or check the physical shoe itself. With this guide and a little measuring, you’ll be tying the perfect knot for your New Balances in no time!
