Steph Curry Writes Letter to 9-Year-Old Who Asked Why His Shoe Was Only for Boys

"I want to make sure you can wear my kicks proudly," Curry wrote.

When 9-year-old Riley Morrison could only find Stephen Curry's signature sneakers in boy's sizes, she was frustrated. She was so frustrated that she wrote to the Golden State Warriors' superstar, who responded with an apology and an invitation. "We are correcting this now!" the two-time league MVP wrote in a letter back to the Golden State Warriors' fan, who lives in Napa, California.

Morrison was in search of a new pair of sneakers to kick off her basketball season, and was disappointed that her shoe of choice — Steph Curry's signature Curry 5s — weren't available in girl's sizes. Morrison told Curry she asked her father for a pair of the sneakers because she was a big fan of his and she enjoyed going to Warriors games with her dad. She also pointed out the shoes were available in boy's sizes and were customizable, too.
