+1 on this question. It's not such a simple task. First of all most places at a mall don't carry laces, or carry laces that are 54". Unfortunately, If you have mids like me, you probably need at least 63" laces to fit. Nextly, if you go online every 63" lace that I've found has a width that is too wide for common projects. I bought a couple mids that I haven't been able to wear because the laces broke. Common projects doesn't really have customer service, and many retail stores agree on the fact that common projects isn't reliable for getting replacement laces.
