KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Nine-year old Riley Morrison recently sent a hand written letter to Golden State Warriors All-Star Stephen Curry, questioning why his Under Armour Curry 5 sneakers aren't available in girl's sizes.

"We are correcting this now!" the two-time league MVP wrote in a letter back to the Golden State Warriors' fan, who lives in Napa, California. The Warriors star also announced the Under Armour team had something special planned for International Women's Day on March 8, to which he would invite Riley to a home game against the Denver Nuggets.

The shoes have since been rebranded in the girls section of UA's site as "Grade School UA Curry 5".

He penned his handwritten letter to Riley and tweeted his reply.

Sure enough, just hours after Curry posted his response, his Curry 5 basketball sneakers were available in girls' sizes on the Under Armour website.

From ages 11 to 14, Stephen Curry would take the floor at what was once known as the Air Canada Centre to hone his game while his father Dell was a member of the Toronto Raptors.




"I wanted to write the letter because it seems unfair that the shoes are only in the boys' section and not in the girls' section", Morrison told Teen Vogue on Thursday, prior to Curry's response.

Can't miss first: The Raptors led by as many as 18 points in the first quarter, their biggest advantage of the night, and were up 38-25 after 12 minutes.

With that, fans also want to emulate their hero by copying his apparel by donning his latest footwear - the Curry 5's.

But Curry takes equality for women very seriously.

He wrote about hosting his first annual all-girls basketball camp, about closing the gender pay gap, and about the future he wants for his daughters. "And I want them to grow up believing that they can dream big, and strive for careers where they'll be treated fairly".
