Girl's Letter to Steph Curry Changed How Under Armour Sells His Shoes

"They did have them for sale under the boys section, even to customize", Riley - who shares a name with one of Curry's daughters - wrote to the point guard.

The heartfelt handwritten letter, which has since gone viral, was met with a handwritten response from the Warriors star himself, who claimed the lack of women's sizes was due to a mis-labeling in the official Under Armour website, where she originally meant to purchase it from.

As for fulfilling his promise, the Under Armour website now has the Curry 5s included in the Kid's Basketball Shoes section, though not labeled as Girls' Basketball Shoes as the UA Lightning model or the UA Jet.

On top of that, Curry told Riley that he plans to send her a pair of the Curry 5's and will make sure she gets one of the first pairs of the Curry 6. The three-time National Basketball Association champion said that "unfortunately we have labeled smaller sizes as "boys" on the website".




Until recently, Under Armour's website listed the Curry 5 as an option in the menus for men, women and boys.

Curry was quick to respond, saying "We are correcting this now!" Thursday he posted a letter to Morrison on Twitter saying he'd spent the past two days working with the company to fix the issue.

Curry, a two-time NBA Most Valuable Player, got off to a strong start this season as the Warriors launched their bid for a third straight NBA title. "I hope you can work with Under Armour to change this because girls want to rock the Curry 5's too". He sweetened the deal by inviting Riley to celebrate International Women's Day with him in Oakland in March before ending the letter with the Under Armour tagline #RuinTheGame.
