Steph Curry tells Under Armour to market his shoes to girls

"My dad and I visited the Under Armour site and were disappointed to see there were no Curry 5s for sale in the girls section".

NBA superstar Steph Curry and a young fan from California have pushed Under Armour to include girls in the marketing and sales of the basketball star's signature shoe. "I want to make sure you can wear my kicks proudly-so I am going to send you a pair of Curry 5's now AND you'll be one of the first kids to get the Curry 6".

Curry, a father of two daughters, took time to respond to Riley with his own hand written letter, in which he explained that the issue is being taken care of now and that he will be sending her a pair of Curry 5s.

"Unfortunately we have labelled the smaller sizes as "boys" on the website".

"I wanted to write the letter because it seems unfair that the shoes are only in the boys' section and not in the girls' section", Morrison told Teen Vogue on Thursday, prior to Curry's response.

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 nearly as big a phenom as Curry himself. "We are correcting this now!" 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.

Curry, a two-time NBA Most Valuable Player, got off to a strong start this season as the Warriors launched their bid for a third straight NBA title.

Until recently, Under Armour's website listed the Curry 5 as an option in the menus for men, women and boys.
