Finding Your Perfect uLace Fit.

Understanding Eyelet Span Is The Key To Finding Your Perfect uLace Fit.

Eyelet Span is the distance between adjacent eyelets on your sneakers.

Your foot or sneaker size will not necessarily determine the size, or type, of uLaces you require. Instead, it’s 100% about how the sneaker is designed and how the manufacturer spaced the eyelets across the foot.

Below is a bit more information about uLace’s no-tie shoelace products, and a clear guide on how to find the right no tie laces for Converse, New Balance sneakers, Skechers, Vans or any other brand. Just remember the right fit lies in matching the eyelet spacing of your sneakers to the right length of uLaces.

Watch uLace founder and CEO Tim Talley –– Shark Tank Season 5 winner –– demonstrate how one person may need a different uLace product to properly lace three different styles of sneakers....

Although the shoe size remains the same across all three sneakers, each design features different eyelet spans, and will need a different type of elastic uLace shoelace.

Tim will also demonstrate how to use the uLace size finder ruler to find the right size of uLaces for your sneakers. So whether you’re looking for no tie laces for Converse, elastic laces for New Balance sneakers, or no tie or elastic laces for Skechers, Vans, or any other brand, follow along to learn how to match the perfect uLace products to all your favorite sneakers.

Of course, If you don't have a printer handy, no worries. The uLace size finder is based on inches so shoppers can use a standard ruler to take their own measurements and then simply refer back to the image of the size finder to find their perfect uLace product. Simply measure the eyelet span across your favorite tennis shoes to find the right no tie laces for Vans, Nikes, Adidas or any other brand!
