ORVA is Established

In the late 1940s, the ORVA family-owned business entered the footwear industry with a chain of retail stores in the northeastern United States. Three generations later, ORVA is a proven e-Commerce partner serving online marketplace consumers nationwide.

Retail Location Opens in NYC

In 1984, Orva turned its focus to capturing the New York City market by opening a 5,000 square foot flagship location on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

ORVA Goes Online

In 2010, ORVA realized that the consumer purchasing experience was making a tectonic shift from brick-and- mortar to online e-Commerce. We embraced it!
