Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry helped fix a problem that a "disappointed" 9-year-old girl had when buying underarm Under Armor sneakers for underwear.
The Girl, The Name of Man is Riley and wrote a letter to Curry on November 18th, in which he set out a problem she had when she wanted to buy Curry 5 before the start of her basketball season. The letter was published on her dad's Instagram page.
"My dad and I visited the Under Armor website and were disappointed that Curry 5 could not be sold under the girls' section," the letter said. "But they did have them for sale in the boys' section, even for customization. I know that you support women athletes because you have two daughters and you run a girls' basketball camp. I hope you can work with Under Armor to change that, because the Curry 5 girls also want to get rocked.
Riley, a native American from Napa, California, also told Teen Vogue that she had not just written the letter to wear the sneakers. But to give the girls the same opportunities the boys get.
After her letter had become viral in the social media, Curry responded on Thursday with a note of her own.
"Unfortunately, we have smaller sizes referred to as" boys "the site," wrote Curry in his note . "We are correcting this NOW! I want to make sure you can proudly wear my kicks – so I'm going to send you a Curry 5 now AND you're one of the first kids to get Curry 6.
Curry added this underarm I had a special plan for International Women's Day on March 8 and invited Riley to celebrate with him in Oakland. The warriors hit the Denver Nuggets that night.
