For the Air Jordan 1 Mid, we recommend that you use a 63 inch/160cm shoelace length. Once again, because the Mid model comes with 8 pairs of shoelace holes, the best shoestring length would be to use the 63 inch laces.

The stock laces that come with the Mid model is the same at 63 inches, which we think is the perfect size. But, if you would like to have some added length to your laces, then you can size up to the 72 inch laces.
