Warriors Star Steph Curry Delivers On 9-Year-Old Napa Girl’s Challenge

Warriors Star Steph Curry Delivers On 9-Year-Old Napa Girl’s Challenge”

According to Under Armour, Morrison helped create the sock liner for the shoe, which features two girls playing basketball along with inspirational phrases such as "Be Fearless", "Girl Power", "Be the Change", "Girls Hoop Too", and "Rock the Currys".

"I was immediately impressed when I saw Riley's letter; that a nine year old girl had the courage to use her voice to call attention to an issue and keep us accountable".

Nine-year-old Riley Morrison wrote a letter to Warriors guard Steph Curry last fall asking why his Under Armour signature shoes were only sold in boys' sizes.

As it turns out, Curry ended up collaborating with Morrison to design the "United We Stand" colorway, honoring International Women's Day. In Curry's response to the letter back in late November, he asked Riley to be present for the Golden State Warriors' game against the Denver Nuggets that would take place on the night of International Women's Day. Curry and Under Armour opened the pop-up shop in December, selling Under Armour apparel and special T-shirts and caps and other items that can only be found there from noon to 7 p.m. on Fridays through Sundays and on the nights of home games.

'I wanted to make sure she was a part of that, ' Curry said. "This has been such an incredible experience", Riley said. "When I was a kid, if I knew Michael Jordan was going to call and check in on me once a year or something like that, you might shoot it a little higher".

In November, Riley went on Under Armour's website hoping to order a pair of the Curry 5s when she discovered the shoes didn't come in girl's sizes.

"Some didn't believe me", Riley said.

'I want my girls to have that confidence, ' said Curry, who has two young daughters.

"I just wanted it to change because I didn't think it was fair", Morrison told "CBS This Morning". Riley said she already modeled herself after - surprise!
