NBA star Steph Curry recently received a handwritten letter from 9-year-old Riley Morrison, who wanted to know why his shoe collection with Under Armour didn’t offer sizes for girls. As a big fan, Morrison wrote to Curry:

“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.”


Curry had the perfect response to Morrison’s request. In a letter, that he shared on Twitter, Curry replied:

“I appreciate your concern and have spent the last 2 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! I want to make sure you can wear my kicks proudly — so I am going to send you a pair of Curry 5’s now and you’ll be one of the first kids to get the Curry 6.


He concluded the letter by saying: “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! All the best!”

If you didn’t already love Steph Curry before, you’ll love him even more now.
