Skate Laces: Choose length based on the size of the skates

As an ice hockey player, you're aware that excessively long skate laces can often get in the way. Here, we provide a straightforward guide to help you choose the right length, and we offer recommendations on skate laces with various colors and features.

What length should my skate laces be?

The primary factor in determining the length of your skate laces is the size of your skates. Below is a simple guide to help you choose the right length:

  • 213 cm / up to size 37
  • 244 cm / 37-41
  • 274 cm / 41-44
  • 305 cm / size 44 and above

The table above provides a good starting point for selecting a pair of skate laces that are adequately long for the skates. However, in some instances, it can be a matter of personal preference, as some players prefer longer laces they can tie around the uppermost part of the skate. This practice was more common in the past when skates weren't as sturdily designed as they are today. 

Recommendations for Skate Laces and Accessories

At Hockeystore, you'll find a wide selection of skate laces from established brands like Bauer and Mohawke. You can choose between waxed and unwaxed laces, with waxed ones being easier to tie tightly while unwaxed provide a more classic look. Additionally, you can opt for a handy hook to tighten your skate laces properly before hitting the ice. A Lace Tightener is a hook that assists in pulling the laces that extra bit tighter, ensuring a comfortable feel and optimal speed on the ice. It's particularly useful for players who use unwaxed skate laces.
