Gimme a break! What on earth am I supposed to do with the extra 30cm (1ft) of lace? Stuff it inside the shoe? This is ridiculous.
Here’s a quick fix to the problem:
- Cut the extra lace off
- Gently heat the tip of the lace with a lighter and squeeze it flat
- While still warm fold and roll the the lace tip to a similar shape as the original
- Heat the tip again
- Squeeze and roll the tip between fingers (remember to wear gloves)
- Repeat 4-5 until you get the desired result
Here’s what the finished pair looks like.
