Laces for Virgils: Buy 54". It'll be a little expensive since it's flat rate shipping... mine came out to be $17 for 1 pair at waxed cotton with brass tips. They're just a hair thinner than normal Visvim laces but they work fine enough. I actually prefer the rounded wax laces over the leather ones for Virgils. Might as well post these here too: here are the best soles I've found for Virgils if you want the heel profile versus the flat Vibram christy soles. I think older models used custom Vibram morflex soles that you can't get. The heel profile on these soles are a little larger than normal Virgils, but I'm sure you can ask your cobbler to sand it down to match. That said, I'm still looking for someone I can send my Virgils to to be worked on (sole replacement, some work on the TPU stabilizer, and some stitching has come undone on the upper), so if anyone has any in mind let me know. I know about the Firm and FJ Western, but not sure if they will work on shoes sent to them. Other Dr. Sole soles are really good, too. I had my W+H x Dayton boots resoled from leather to the raw corded and it's awesome. Lin is a great guy and very knowledgeable and didn't hesitate to answer any of my numerous questions.
