Stephen Curry is an NBA star who, as his coach says, isn't only a great player but he's “an equally impressive human being [as well].” A 9-year-old from Napa, California, recently decided to write the basketball player a letter to complain. The girl wanted to get a pair of Under Armour’s ‘Stephen Curry’ shoes for her new hoops season, but couldn't find any online. Nine-year-old Riley was frustrated that the new Curry 5 shoes were available only in boy’s and men’s sizes. Naturally, she decided to take her problem straight to the top.


Riley Morrison’s dad decided to share his daughter’s letter online, stating that it is “her way of attempting to make a difference.” In this letter, Riley explained that she and her father were disappointed to find that Under Armour is selling the Curry 5 shoes only to boys. Riley’s letter then goes on: “I know you support girl athletes because you have two daughters and you host an all-girls basketball camp.” The girl added: “I hope you can work with Under Armour to change this, because girls want to rock the Curry 5s, too.”


Surprisingly, Curry wrote her back, saying: “Unfortunately we have labeled smaller sizes ‘boys’ on the website and we are correcting this NOW.” However, this wasn't over; the NBA star stated that he'd be sending Riley “a pair of Curry 5’s”. He added that he's planning something special on Women’s Day and hopes that Riley could celebrate with him in Oakland.


The Curry 5 shoes are now available in the girls’ section. If this story taught us anything, is that you are never too young be a social activist!
