In Honor of International Women’s Day

Riley Morrison the young girl who wrote a letter to Steph Curry 5 month ago saying “I know you support girl athletes because you have two daughters and host an all girls basketball camp.I hope you can work with under armor to change this because girls want to rock the Curry 5’s too.”After not being able to find the shoe in women sizes.

This letter had a big impact on Curry and encouraged him come out with the Curry 6’s.Riley received the first of the Curry 6’s a day before the official launch event in honor of International Women Day.Riley was surprised by Curry  at the official lunch event in Oakland where they talk and answered media questions.

Riley had also co-designed the new shoes, the shoe consisted of a blend of purple and a deep orchid with white and a sock linear that she helped design.Hopefully this shows other young women that they do have a voice and that they shouldn’t be afraid to use it.
