Steph sends handwritten letter to girl with shoe question

Steph sends handwritten letter to girl with shoe question

Nine-year-old Californian Riley Morrison wrote a letter to the Golden State Warriors star to ask why his signature shoe, the Curry 5, wasn't available in "girls" sizes on the UA website, SB Nation reported.

So she wrote him a letter.

"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.

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

"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".

He said Curry, recovering from a left groin strain suffered in a loss to Milwaukee on November 8, had "looked great" in practice over the last two days. In 12 games this season, Curry is averaging 29.5 points, 6.1 assists and 5.0 rebounds per game while shooting 51.5 per cent from the floor.

The heartfelt handwritten letter, which has since gone viral, was met with a handwritten response from the Warriors star himself, who claimed the lack of women's sizes was due to a mis-labeling in the official Under Armour website, where she originally meant to purchase it from.

Mauricio Pochettino: Tottenham have the belief and faith to win in Barcelona
With Tottenham facing early Champions League elimination, Christian Eriksen came to the rescue against Inter Milan . Tottenham must still beat Barcelona on December 11 at the Camp Nou to make sure of advancing to the knockout phase.

With that, fans also want to emulate their hero by copying his apparel by donning his latest footwear - the Curry 5's.

"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.

And there's more - he's planning something for International Women's Day in March, and wants Riley to come. "But plan to be in Oakland that night!"

It's always surprising that a professional basketball player - or any pro athlete - would take the time to respond to a kid's letter.

Curry has been outspoken about equal opportunities for women in the past.

She concluded with a plea for Curry to address the oversight.
