Stephen Curry responds to message from fan over no women’s shoe

Stephen Curry responds to message from fan over no women’s shoe

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.

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. Unfortunately, Riley and her dad went to buy the Curry 5 online and found they're only sold in boys' sizes, prompting her to bring this to Curry's attention. Curry tells Morrison in the letter.

"Hey Riley, I appreciate your concern and have spent the last 2 days talking to Under Armour about how we can fix the issue", Curry's response states.

As Riley noted in her letter, the Under Armour site offers a number of Curry 5 colorways for boys, including the option to customize, but there are none for sale under the girl's section. The two-time MVP explained that smaller sizes were labeled as "boys" on Under Armour's website. "I know you support girl athletes because you have two daughters and you host an all-girls basketball camp", she wrote.

"Thanks to Riley and Stephen, we're correcting a simple yet critical error", Stoyer wrote in an email to CBS News.

That wasn't all: He invited her to a game. "More to come on that, but plan to be in Oakland that night!"

Curry, who has not played since November 8 after injuring his groin in a home loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, returned to practice earlier this week.
