Our History

Established in 1948, this family-owned business entered the footwear industry with a chain of retail stores in the northeastern USA. Three generations later, Orva has now expanded to serve consumers nationwide via the Amazon marketplace.

In 2010, while in our flagship store on upper east side of Manhattan, we realized that the consumer purchasing experience was making a tectonic shift. We embraced it!



Since developing of our model, we have become a market leader as a trusted 3P authorized retail partner with many footwear, apparel and equipment brands.

To accommodate our rapid growth, we have expanded into five regional distribution centers with 500,000 dedicated square feet. In addition, we have moved into a brand new 10,000 square foot office within Wall Street Plaza in New York City’s financial district. These expansions increase speed to market to the consumer.
