Steph Curry Drops New Shoes for International Women’s Day

Last fall, nine-year old Riley Morrison wrote a letter to Warriors All-Star Steph Curry asking why his Under Armour signature shoes were only sold in boy’s sizes. In response, Curry addressed the request by listing new shoes specifically under the site’s girls’ section, and surprising Riley with two pairs of his new Curry 6s on Christmas Day.

On top of that, Curry had the help of Riley in designing a pair of shoes in honor of International Women’s Day.

“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,” Curry said. “She was focused on the opportunity for ALL girls, not just herself. She’s been an amazing catalyst for change, not only with my product but also with the entire Under Armour brand. She is inspiring, and wise beyond her years.”

The actual shoes feature a liner with two girls playing basketball, surrounded by words that inspired Riley like “Be Fearless,” “Girl Power,” “Be the Change,” Girls Hoop Too” and “Rock the Currys.”

All of the proceeds from the sale of these new shoes will go toward a scholarship that the Stephen and Ayesha Curry Family Foundation and Under Armour have created for college-bound female students in the Bay Area.
