TORONTO (AP) - A letter from a 9-year-old girl has helped Stephen Curry fix online access to his shoes for kids.
Riley Morrison of Napa, California, wrote to Curry to tell him she couldn't buy his Curry 5 shoes because they weren't available on the Under Armour website. They were only marketed to boys.
The two-time MVP and five-time All-Star replied with an apology , saying in a hand-written response he's been working with Under Armour to remedy the situation. Curry promised to send Morrison two pairs of shoes, including the new Curry 6 model.
@EmmaWatson Hi Emma, I know you are a big advocate for women. I was hoping you could retweet my daughter’s letter to @StephenCurry30 . This is her small way of making a difference and speaking up for women. You are a role model for her. We both would be very thankful. pic.twitter.com/mYNRtPMXP0

He also invited her to the Warriors home game on March 8, International Women's Day.
"That's the beauty of Steph," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said before Thursday's game at Toronto. "He understands his power. He understands the impact he can make on people's lives. And I'm just incredibly proud of him."
Curry missed his 11th straight game Thursday because of a strained left groin and didn't speak to reporters. He's expected to return Saturday at Detroit.
