How do you deal with the excess length of shoe lock-laces?

I recently bought a pair of Merrell Moab shoes. They have lock laces, where you pull the elastic laces tight and then slide a locking cinch down to hold the laces where you pulled them. But the result is that there is excess length of lace that is so long that they sometimes fall under the shoe and I step on them. That's annoying. How to prevent the excess length from being a problem?
