Free International Laboratory is designed so people can enjoy the experience of visiting the store and appreciate its architectural design. It can be difficult to find given its unusual location (check our pictures for a rough idea). F.I.L. designs small collections of luxury sought-after footwear, often collaborating with other design houses and artists. The thing that might strike visitors as strange is the complete lack of music in the shop. According to its owner Hiroki Nakamura (known to many as the designer of Visvim), customers should be relaxed in order to find and choose what they really need from a shoe.
