“IMPO Shoes celebrates Little Women and the journey of women everywhere,” said Jim Maloney, IMPO’s Vice President of Marketing, and Global Production. “It was clear to us that Pinnacle Peak Pictures’ interpretation of Little Women represents the transcendence of today’s young women in their coming of age experience. We saw a wholesome family movie that is both forward thinking, and caring about what matters most today to mothers and daughters. We felt a unique synergy with this film. IMPO seeks to offer something more than just trend leading fashion, we are driven to deliver improved fit and comfort with our shoes. We want women everywhere to feel as comfortable, confident and individual in their shoes as they feel in their own skin.”

IMPO has been on its own journey since it first opened for business 50 years ago. In the late 60s, the company had its humble start by importing a few Danish clogs from a wooden shoe factory in Denmark and quickly grew to become the largest importer of clogs in the United States during the 70s.

Over the years, the company evolved and has produced all types of footwear, from the infamous macramé sandals of the 1970s, to fashion kidskin, snakeskin and eel skin footwear in the 1980s, to becoming a leader in fashion dress sandals, shoes and boots with a focus on stretch for comfort and fit.

Today IMPO is a world-class trendsetting footwear company designing and producing women’s dress sandals, shoes and boots for major retailers, independents and footwear companies internationally. www.impo.com.

“Pinnacle Peak Pictures’ passion to deliver fresh, unique, family-friendly entertainment is a significant goal for our studio. We feel that our mission and desire is off to a great start in our interpretation of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women,” said Steve Fedyski, Chief Operating Officer, Pinnacle Peak Pictures/Pure Flix Entertainment. “We are honored to have IMPO Shoes as our sponsor. It is clear that we share a conviction that women everywhere need to be celebrated, respected and honored for their individualism, personal self-expression, motivation, work and success. We hope our modern interpretation captures today’s mother-daughter and sister relationships accentuated by the journey of a young woman’s coming of age.”
