Young Fans Calls For Change With Curry’s Sneaker Line

A 9-year-old girl wrote a letter to NBA star Steph Curry pointing out that his shoes do not come in girl sizes, and not only did Curry respond, he made a change.

Riley Morrison wrote in her letter that she’s a big fan of the Golden State Warriors point guard and she wanted a pair of Icon Curry 5 sneakers, but when she visited the Under Armour website to buy them, she didn’t see them listed under the girls’ section.

“Dear Mr. Stephen Curry,
My name is Riley (just like your daughter), I’m 9 years old from Napa, California. I am a big fan of yours. I enjoy going to Warriors games with my dad. 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 the girls section. However, 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 Armour to change this because girls want to rock the Curry 5s, too.”

On Thursday, Steph Curry tweeted the handwritten note that he sent Riley in response.

He said that she would be among the first to receive the trainers. However, he went one step further and said he wanted to celebrate International Women’s Day with the young girl.

He continued: “But plan to be in Oakland that night!”

The Warriors have a home game on March 8 against the Denver Nuggets.

Curry has two young daughters and, in the past, has been an outspoken advocate for women’s rights. In an op-ed he penned for The Players Tribune under the headline “This Is Personal”, he wrote about raising his daughters and pushing for a close in the gender pay gap.

“I want them to grow up in a world where their gender does not feel like a rule book for what they should think, or be, or do. And I want them to grow up believing that they can dream big, and strive for careers where they’ll be treated fairly,” he said. “And of course: paid equally.”
