Steph Curry Sweetly Responds After 9-Year-Old Calls Him Out For Not Having Girl Sneakers
Can Stephen Curry get any nicer? A concerned 9-year-old fan named Riley wrote Steph a letter upset about the gender stipulations of buying Steph’s Under Armour sneaker – the Curry 5. She wrote:
“Dear Stephen Curry,
My name is Riley (just like your daughter), I’m 9 years old from Napa, California. I am a big fan of yours. I enjoy going to Warriors games with my dad. I asked my dad to buy me the new Curry 5’s because I’m starting a new basketball season. My dad and I visited the Under Armour website and were disappointed to see that there were no Curry 5’s for sale under the girls section. However, they did have them for sale under the boys section, even to customize. I know you support girl athletes because you have two daughters and you host an all girls basketball camp. I hope you can work with Under Armour to change this because girls want to rock the Curry 5’s too.
Riley will make an incredible civically engaged adult. She’s already using her voice for change! To her surprise, her favorite basketball play not only wrote her back, but obliged her concerns. Stephen Curry wrote:
I appreciate your concern and have spent the last two days talking with Under Armour about how we can fix the issue. Unfortunately, we have labeled the smaller sizes as “boys” on the website. We are correcting this now! 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. Lastly, we have something special in the works for International Women’s Day on March 8th, and I want you to celebrate with me! More to come on that, but plan to be in Oakland that night! All the best! #RUINTHEGAME
Are the Curry 5’s in our size?
