Steph Curry Responds to 9-Year-Old's Letter About Not Having a Girls' Section for His Shoes
Under Armour has now put the Curry 5s in their girls' section.
Steph Curry wanted to let a 9-year-old girl that his shoes aren’t just for boys.
Riley Morrison, 9, wrote the NBA All-Star to tell him she was “disappointed” to find that his shoes, the Curry 5s, were only listed under the boys' section on the Under Armour website.
“I know you support girl athletes because you have two daughters and host an all-girls basketball camp,” Riley wrote. “I hope you can work with Under Armour to change this because girls want to the rock the Curry 5s too.”
Curry wasted no time replying to Riley’s letter letting her know that he’s working on the issue.
“We are correcting this now!” Curry wrote in a reply letter he posted to Twitter. “I want to make sure you can wear my kicks proudly – so I am going to send you a pair of Curry 5s now.”
The Golden State Warrior also said Riley will now be one of the first kids to get a pair of the Curry 6s when they come out and invited her to an upcoming event for International Women’s Day on March 8.
"More to come on that," he wrote. "But plan to be in Oakland that night!"
On Thursday, Under Armour added a girls' section for Curry’s shoes.
"Thanks to Riley and Stephen, we're correcting a simple yet critical error," Dean Stoyer, a spokesperson for the Under Armour, told CBS News.
