i just got a pair of guidi's that i like quite a bit and it's not at all a big deal, but the long laces throw me off. i'm going to just cut them to a normal length, but why would they even include such long laces to begin with? i get that people might to cut them to their preferred size, but even considering that these are still super long. just seems like a waste and a slight inconvenience for the buyer. i can't imagine anyone wanting laces this long. on boots i could see some people wanting to loop them around the shaft, but these are derbies.
