A 9-year-old girl wrote a note to the NBA star Steph Curry pointed out that his name shoes seemed to be available for sale only to boys, and not Just answered Curry, he made a change.
Riley Morrison wrote in her letter, which her dad published online on November 1
8, that she is a big fan of the Golden State Warriors punisher and in preparation for her basketball season, she wanted a pair of Under Armor Icon Curry 5 sneakers. But when she visited the website to buy them, she did not see them listed under the girls tab.
Riley wrote. “I hope you can work with Under Armor to change this because girls want to rock Curry 5’s.”
On Thursday, Curry tweeted the handwritten note as he sent Riley to answer. “Unfortunately, we have listed smaller sizes like” boys “on the website,” he acknowledged. He said he has now worked under Armor to put them in the girls section too, and surely the shoes are now there, customizable and with instructions for women to order the sneakers one and a half size less than their usual size.  Curry also told Riley that he sent her a couple of Curry 5s, and said she would be among the first kids to have Curry 6s.
The Warriors player also asked Riley, who lives in northern California, to make sure she can be in Oakland on International Women’s Day on March 8 for “something special at work.”
