Q: What length do I need?

A: If you don't have any existing laces to measure then by far the best method is to get string or something similar to lace the footwear and then measure that.

You could also drop by the website of Professor Shoelace, Ian Fieggen at www.fieggen.com/shoelace where there are calculators for length depending on the style of lacing.

If that's too time consuming and you want your laces quick and easy then we have a rough guide to lengths required here: Shoelace length calculator
