Little girl's letter to Stephen Curry helps enact change at Under Armour
A 9-year-old California girl's letter to Stephen Curry has made her family proud.
Riley Morrison asked a simple question to the Golden State Warriors superstar - Why wasn't his signature shoe, the Curry 5, available in girl's sizes?
They did have them for sale under the boys section, even to customize. I know you support girl athletes because you have two daughters and you host an all girls basketball camp. I hope you can work with Under Armor to change this because girls want to rock the Curry 5’s too.
Now, superstar athletes get hundreds of letters from fans a week, and what Curry did is very uncommon in the sports world. He answered back.
Not only did he answer back, but he wrote a handwritten letter back to the little girl and immediately worked to correct the error.
Unfortunately we have labeled the smaller sizes as “boys” on the website. We are correcting this NOW! 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. Lastly, we have something special in the works for International Women’s Day on March 8th, and I want you to celebrate with me! More to come on that, but plan to be in Oakland that night!
Chris Morrison, Riley's father, was extremely proud of his daughter in her attempt to make a difference.
