    Does anyone know how long the shoelaces of Nike Tennis shoes are?

    I only have Courtballistec 3.3 French Open version and the shoelaces are perfect for a double knot.

    How long are those? I want to order some today and left my shoes at home. I'd imagine they have to be pretty close.

    Too short on both the 3.3 and 4.3. Perfect length on the 2K11s and 2.3s. Sorry I can't be more specific.

    Maybe you're right, but you can get the idea that they're not extra long.
    The thing is they're no longer than needed for a double knot, you don't get discomfort from them touching or getting untied.
    I don't have Adidas Barricade to make an exact comparison, but I think it's not so important how long they are but the quality of the laces, bad quality laces would get untied and even break, no such problem here.
    For Adidas, I have this Bercuda model:

    I only bought them for cause they were cheap on sale, I'm satisfied as I use them for clay where they get all super dirty, the laces are a bit longer so you know.

    My vapor 8s are too long, have to triple knot in size 10.5, while my 2k11s (size 11) are too short. I barely get one knot done.

    I usually end up replacing most laces with either a 130cm or 140cm. Depends on the fit of the shoe and whether you tie them very tight or with a bit of space for blood circulation.

    I find most stock laces are always too short.
