A 9-year-old girl named Riley Morrison wrote Warriors' star Steph Curry a letter complaining that when she went to buy his Under Armour sneakers, she could only find boy sizes.
Believe it or not, Steph Curry himself, hand-wrote a note back to Riley and apologized for the mishap and vowed to make immediate changes.
Riley's father Chris says he and his daughter are both big sneaker lovers and were excited that basketball season had started again. Riley chose the Curry 5s as her sneaker of choice for the season but when Chris went to the Under Armour website, there were none listed in the girl's section, just the boy's.
So he told her to write a letter to Steph....and she did....
Among other things, she said: "I hope you can work with Under Armour to change this, because girls want to rock the Curry 5s too."
She mailed the letter in the old-fashioned way to the Warriors fan office. But Morrison has a friend at Vox in New York, where reporter Liz Plant tweeted a screen shot of the letter and tagged Curry. "Can u help?" Plant asked. Five minutes after Plant's tweet, Teen Vogue called Riley and broke the story, Morrison said.
