Choosing the right length of laces for your shoes is essential for both comfort and style. The length of the laces depends mainly on the number and type of eyelets in your shoes.

All the laces on our site are suitable for dress shoes, sports shoes and trainers. We have a wide range of shoelaces in a variety of styles and colours, so you're sure to find the right pair for you. Our shoelaces are made of cotton.

We recommend that you change them regularly to keep your shoes looking their best.

How do I choose the right lace size?

The length of your laces is generally determined by the number of eyelets in your shoes. To do this, you need to count the number of eyelets in your shoes. The number of eyelets is an indicator of the length of the laces.

You can count the eyelets on a single shoe to determine the length of the laces.

Here's a guide to help you choose the right length:

- 3-4 eyelets: Choose laces between 60 and 70 cm long. This length is often suitable for children's shoes with simple lacing.

- 5-6 eyelets: Shoes with 5 or 6 eyelets require laces between 75 and 90 cm long. This type of lacing is common for dress shoes, sports shoes and trainers.

- 7-8 eyelets: For this number of eyelets, 100 to 120 cm of lacing is recommended. These laces are ideal for hiking or walking boots. They may be suitable for Timberland boots.

- 9-10 eyelets: Shoes with 9 to 10 pairs of eyelets require laces of 140 cm or more. These are often high boots or work shoes that require tight, secure lacing.

Choosing the right laces for your shoes

On the website you'll find a wide range of laces for all types of shoes. You can change your style as often as you like. You'll find only cotton shoelaces in our range.

We recommend

- Flat laces: Ideal for trainers and sports shoes. They offer a wider surface for a secure fit.

- Cord laces: Best for hiking boots and shoes. They are more durable. Choose these laces for styles such as Timberland or Campers.

- Thin round laces: These laces are not waxed and can be used for dress shoes. They are suitable for more casual shoes.

- Waxed round laces: These have a shiny finish that adds a touch of elegance. Recommended for leather dress shoes, they offer a stylish look and greater durability.

How do I lace my shoes?

Lacing a shoe may seem simple, but mastering the technique for elegant, durable lacing is more complex. Here's a step-by-step guide to lacing your shoes like a pro:

1 - Tie a simple knot to tighten the shoe, making sure that the left lace is at the top and the right lace is at the bottom. Tighten this first step to ensure you are held securely in your shoes.

2 - Next, make the first loop.

3 - Make a second loop with the other shoelace as you would for a simple knot.

4 - Bring the second loop back inside.

5 - Finally, tighten the knot.

At the end of the day, to untie the knot, simply pull on both laces at the same time.
