Nine-Year-Old's Letter Prompts Stephen Curry to Change How Under Armour Sells His Shoes to Girls

A young Warriors fan called out Under Armour's options for girls' sizes in a hand-written letter to Steph Curry.

Stephen Curry is one of the most popular NBA players on the planet right now, but one nine-year-old girl had a bone to pick with him recently.

Riley Morrison wrote a letter to Curry explaining how she is "a big fan" of his and enjoys attending Golden State Warriors games with her dad. She's about to start a new basketball season and wanted to wear the three-time NBA champion's Under Armour Curry 5 sneakers. Unfortunately, Riley and her dad went to buy the Curry 5 online and found they're only sold in boys' sizes, prompting her to bring this to Curry's attention.

Riley really pulled the guilt card on Curry to fix this issue, reminding him that he has two daughters and has hosted an all-girls basketball camp.

Curry wrote Riley back to say he talked with Under Armour about how to fix the situation. The two-time MVP explained that smaller sizes were labeled as "boys" on Under Armour's website. But don't worry, he'll get it fixed right away!

On top of that, Curry told Riley that he plans to send her a pair of the Curry 5's and will make sure she gets one of the first pairs of the Curry 6. He sweetened the deal by inviting Riley to celebrate International Women's Day with him in Oakland in March before ending the letter with the Under Armour tagline #RuinTheGame.

The point guard is a man of his word, and the Curry 5 is now listed under the "Girls Basketball Athletic Shoes" category on Under Armour's website.

And people say the art of letter writing is dead.
