Steph Curry has been wowing fans for what he does on the court for years, but his off-the-court moves might be just as impressive.
That’s because he made his Under Armour basketball sneakers available to girls after 9-year old Riley Morrison of Napa, Calif. wrote him letter.
She did so after her father tried to buy her the new Curry 5s on the Under Armour website and couldn’t find them in the girls’ section. He then shared his daughter’s letter on social media and tagged Steph, as well his wife Ayesha Curry.
“I enjoy going to Warriors games with my dad,” wrote Riley. “I asked my dad to buy me the new Curry 5s, because I’m starting a new basketball season. My dad and I visited the Under Armour website and were disappointed to see that there were no Curry 5s for sale under girls. However, they did have them for sale under the boys section, even to customize.”
Riley then drove her point home by mentioning that Steph runs an almost all-female basketball camp and since he has two daughters himself, he’d understand her issue.
Fortunately, for the proactive 9-year-old and little girls everywhere, Steph did empathize and told Riley he’s already fixing things.
“Hey Riley,” his letter began. “I appreciate your concern and have spent the last two days talking to Under Armour about how we can fix the issue. Unfortunately, we have labeled smaller sizes as ‘boys’ on the website.”
“We are correcting this now,” Steph added. “I want to make sure you can wear my kicks proudly, so I am going to send you a pair of Curry 5s now, and you’ll be one of the first kids to get the Curry 6.”
The two-time MVP also told Riley that he’ll invite her to a Warriors’ game on International Women’s Day on March 8, 2019.
