    About 60", most likely. Probably nobody is going to unlace and measure his shoelaces for you. The definitive answer, of course, would come from Alden.

    Most shoelaces will have the number of eyelets they best fit on the back of the package.

    The laces in the pic look a bit long, but those boots are SWEET!

    Generally...

    60" for 7-9 eyelets
    72" for 9+ eyelets

    Given how much add'l length there seems to be when tied, those could be 72", but doubt it. But generally speaking, 60" would be fine for most boots. 72" usually for those boots that go almost mid-calf.
