When Riley Morrison and her dad went shopping online for Steph Curry’s signature Under Armour Curry 5 shoes, they ran into a problem. The Under Armour site did not have a girls section for Riley to purchase the shoes she wanted. Riley took action and wrote Steph Curry a letter asking that he first notice the issue and then fix it. After a few days, Steph wrote a letter back to Riley and also sent her a new pair of the Curry 5’s.
@EmmaWatson Hi Emma, I know you’re a big advocate for women. I was hoping you could retweet my daughter’s letter to @StephenCurry30 . This is her small way of making a difference and speaking up for women. You are a role model for her. We both would be very thankful. pic.twitter.com/mYNRtPMXP0

First of all, this is a great story. Curry is a stand-up guy for personally writing a letter back and then giving Riley Morrison more than what she could have ever imagined of receiving. However, Under Armour has to get their stuff together. You didn’t have a girls section for your sneakers? After taking a look at the Under Armour website, they now have the shoe available for girls.
Second of all, I am excited that more kids are starting to play basketball again. The NBA is doing a fantastic job at heightening kids interest in the sport. Steph Curry is definitely one of those guys that kids look up to and model their game after. Keep balling Riley Morrison. Who knows, maybe we will see you in the WNBA someday.
