About Us





Inspiration is everywhere!  Inspired by the many activities and engagements of life, Angilina designs for all occasions, because let's be honest, one shoe doesn't fit all.  Angilina infuses inspiration from the random all throughout her designs, a technique she has perfected throughout her design career.



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 and a baby, they are now turning what was at one time a far off dream, into a reality.


Home is Where the Heart is

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 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!


Our crowdfunding approach to making shoes helps minimize the guesswork. We are committed to reducing unnecessary inventory and waste wherever possible.  Check our No Box Inside a Box blog post.
