• Welcome Back to New York!

    FFANY is the Fashion Footwear Association of New York


    The Mission of FFANY

    At the Fashion Footwear Association of New York, we seek to serve and promote the vibrant, global footwear industry doing business in New York City, the center of global business and the home to many of America’s leading footwear companies. FFANY is dedicated to making it easy for the footwear community—retailers, brands, designers, buyers, and sellers—to do business here.


    FFANY strives to promote:

    • ​Stewardship of the Fashion Footwear Charitable Foundation which is reliant upon and galvanizes the membership and industry through the annual Shoes on Sale charitable event. The FFCF unites the industry in charity by rallying footwear leaders around the relevant and important cause of funding groundbreaking first step breast cancer research, and has given nearly $60M to the effort to find a cure.
    • The maintenance and organization of vital showroom, member location, leadership, and contact data for Market Weeks (including the digital Footwear Industry Directory).
    • Facilitating the needs of the non-NYC showroom FFANY members during New York City Market Weeks.
    • Representing the collective voice of FFANY member companies and advocating for the New York footwear industry as a consolidator of concerns and comments.
    • Growing an industry that requires more than just business opportunities. FFANY understands the need to strengthen the industry through education, and we are proud to sponsor the Joseph Moore Scholarship at the Arsutoria School in Milan each year.


    The Footwear Distributors and Retailers of America (FDRA) and the Fashion Footwear Association of New York (FFANY) joined forces in 2020.


    Discover new brands, visit with industry partners, and get the first look at the latest footwear trends. Four weeks of FFANY Market Week each year bring together independent store owners, boutique buyers, department store merchants, and industry press to New York City, the heart of the fashion footwear industry.

    FFANY Market Week takes place at FFANY member showrooms throughout New York City. Showroom addresses can be found in the Footwear Industry Directory. There are also “Brand Showcases” during the June and December Markets at locations in Midtown Manhattan as well as officially recognized footwear exhibitions held at The Park Lane Hotel.



    While the show is open to trade only, we understand that potential new businesses need to attend a trade show to do market research and network for contacts. If you have specific questions on our admittance policy, please contact us.



    If you live and distribute shoes outside of the United States, you may attend the show; however, be sure to check if you need a visa and any other necessary documentation required enter the country. FFANY is unable to provide letters of invitation for attendees.
