Shoelace Length Chart

Posted by Farhan Zaini on

Shoelaces are often supplied to fit a certain number of eyelets. The most common number of eyelets are around 5-7 pairs of eyelets. If you don't know what eyelets are, it's the holes that you stick your shoelaces in.

I copied a table below from www.fieggen.com to ROUGHLY assist my customers in estimating the required length as shoes can vary. 

First, you need to determine the type of horizontal spacings you have across your shoes. Is it narrow, medium or wide? Examples are provided in the table to help you.

Then check how many pairs of eyelets do you ACTUALLY USE. Some shoes have 7 pairs of eyelets but the user may choose to use 5 pairs.

Once you have those details, refer to the table below to gauge the length that you need. These are just rough gauges. A 1.20m lace, can easily fit a 5-7 pair of eyelets shoes.
