#WATWB Steph Curry Responds To Girl’s Letter

Steph Curry Responds To Girl’s Letter About Why His Shoes Do Not Come In Girls Sizes

November 30, 2018

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.

Sincerely,
Riley Morrison”

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

He said he has now worked with Under Armour to put them in the girls section too, and sure enough the shoes are now there.

Curry has been an outspoken advocate for women’s rights, writing earlier this year, “I want our girls to grow up knowing that there are no boundaries that can be placed on their futures, period.”FacebookTwitter

      • I want to separate myself, my post to allow me to focus in a different direct with my site. I will continue to write for Survivor’s on a regular basis but want to show the positive side of life. One area I’m very interested in spending time learning about drugs in clinical trials or just approved for mental health or chronic illness. God must have floated the idea to me, I want people to know what is happening everyday to help. We feel so alone at times. We may get involved or feel better than drug makers have not slowed in find a cure and drugs that work. 🙂

  1. I saw this a while back in the news, but didn’t stop to read the whole story. So glad I did today! Though I don’t really follow big team sports, I played a lot of basketball in 7th and 8th grade so can relate to Riley. I’m making it a point now to remember Stephen Curry, The Golden State Warriors, Riley Morrison, and March 8. Thanks for sharing this!

    • I agree with that, it’s media gone wild. You may want to join the group. We write good news stories on the last Friday of the month. It’s my second month and I feel a sense of peace. If that makes sense.
      I know you’re on the mend and was thinking you would like to make a music request! I know you love music as much as I do. Have a great day. 🙂
