Steph Curry is known for being a great guy on and off the court. Today is no different, as he is now working with Under Armour to make a little girl’s request for inclusivity a reality!
Nine-year old Riley Morrison sent Curry a hand written letter to inquire about why his Under Armour Curry 5 sneakers aren’t available in girl’s sizes. Riley says in the letter, that the Under Armour website offers several options for the Curry 5 in boys sizes, but there are currently none for sale under the “girls”. Take a look at his response:

Curry himself, is a father of two daughters, Riley and Ryan so he understandably has some insight into the lack of inclusivity in the sports world for young girls. In his own handwritten response to Morrisson he says he is working closely with the athletic brand to get the issue resloved “NOW!” The NBA all star goes on to say the young girl will be among the first kids to receive his ‘Curry 6’ shoe, AND says he wants her to be apart of something special he has planned for International Women’s Day on March 8th. On that he ends the letter with “More to come on that, but plan to be in Oakland that night!” Well, we thought we couldn’t love Steph anymore…WE WERE WRONG! Check out Riley’s original letter below:
