NBA star Steph Curry is promising to make things right for a young girl who wrote a letter to the hoopster when she couldn’t find Curry’s latest shoes from Under Armour in sizes for girls.
In the letter, shared earlier this week by Vox’s Liz Plank, 9-year-old Riley Morrison explained to Curry she loves playing basketball and she really wants those sweet Curry 5s, but she can’t seem to find them in girls’ sizes.
The youngster’s letter didn’t fall on deaf ears, thankfully, and it probably helps she shares a name with one of Curry’s daughters whose almost as big a phenom as Curry himself.
Curry was quick to respond, saying “We are correcting this now! I want to make sure you can wear my kicks proudly.”
Aside from sending Riley a free pair of 5s, Curry also invited Riley to a planned event on International Women’s Day on March 8, and that’s definitely something to look forward to.
And true to Curry’s word, the 5s are, as of Thursday afternoon, listed under the girls’ section on Under Armour’s website.
Here’s to hoping Curry pulls a great event on March 8 and young Riley drives the line in her new shoes soon.
Of course, in this age of viral marketing, you’d be forgiven for being at least a little skeptical of this whole interaction as a way to promote the highly anticipated Curry 6s (which will hopefully be better received than his first shoes).
