Launched in 2016, House No: 3028 LLC is the brainchild of sister and brother duo, Thressa Smith and Norrell Casey, based out of Oakland, CA. With Thressa Fashion Institute training, backgrounds in sales and fashion
inspiration from their mother, this dynamic team set out to shake up the world of nude shoes. On a wing and a prayer, they set out to make their dreams come true: be successful black entrepreneurs, make a mark in the fashion industry geared toward the inclusion of all women of color, and buy back the family home, located in the Oakland foothills... The home bears the House No: 3028!!
House No: 3028, nude shoes for women of color. The inspiration was fashion frustration. Unable to find the right
nude shoe, unless she wanted to pay over $600 for a Christian Louboutin nude, Thressa decided to design and sell her own.
The initial offering of The NU 2”, 3” & 4" heels, in six stunning hues: Honey, Cookie, Brown Sugar, Caramel, Brownie & Cacao, was quite successful....NU Pumps allow brown girls to perfectly match, complement
or contrast their skin tone. Before long, it became clear that women wanted a little more edge and more variety. After months of additional research to find the right supplier and product development to provide the best product, the best quality and the best price, House No: 3028 is prepared to relaunch, with a 5”pump and the option for other styles, by request. You can still get their 2”, 3”and 4”heels, in all six shades: visit the website https://www.thirtytwentyeight.com/
