Mike and Angilina discussed starting a footwear company during a random phone call in 2009. Fast forward through lots of journeys, late nights, amazing days, a marriage, a baby boy, and one on the way. They are now turning what was at one time a far off dream, into a reality.
We feature classic designs with a modern twist. Our shoes are made in small batches by European Craftsmen using premium materials, no detail is overlooked. We take pride in delivering quality product that you can wear with confidence.
We partner with true artisans who have made footwear their craft. Many of our factories are family owned. We honor and appreciate the relationships we have. Amazing things happen when you embrace the talents and the skills of those around you. Collaboration is where magic happens!
We are putting our blood, sweat, and tears into our brand, so we chose a name that means a lot to us. 5028 (pronounced "Fifty Twenty Eight") represents the cornerstone house of Angilina's grandparents' home/business where many social gatherings, family debates, entrepreneurial learnings, and unforgettable memories were made. This drives much of the work you see in our brand today.
We are committed to reducing unnecessary inventory and waste wherever possible. When you pre-order your shoes it helps minimize the guesswork, we get to make a pair specially for you, and your handcrafted shoes have a home from the day they are born. Our upcycled shoes are made from dead-stock materials. Check our No Box Inside a Box blog post.
