In the Philippines, The Lab is helping consumers restore their favorite footwear to almost new condition

Although there is a constant release of new well-designed shoes, The Lab wants to help people restore and potentially recreate the shoes that they already own. Located in the Philippines, this specialty sneaker repair hop helps people restore any sneaker that they wish. The shop exists to serve sneakerheads who want to keep their collections alive and well.

The Lab was originally started by Jay Villarama, who started it after he visited the U.S. He saw how people were deeply invested in some of their shoes, customizing and restoring their collection. After quitting his job, he started his business but went through a lot of trial and error, destroying some of his own shoes in the learning process. He eventually perfected the process and now even offers customization services, letting customers personalize any pair. The Lab also has its own brand of cleaning solution that helps clients keep their shoes look new.

Villarama ensures the quality of his services by personally training each staff member, ensuring that everyone has a specific, specialized role because many of the shoes they get are pricey and high in demand. The business continues to grow through its sustainable services.
