Steph sends handwritten letter to girl with shoe question

In the letter, shared earlier this week by Vox's Liz Plank, 9-year-old Riley Morrison explained to Curry she loves playing basketball and she really wants those sweet Curry 5s, but she can't seem to find them in girls' sizes.

That wasn't all: He invited her to a game.

Despite the clear desire to go out of his way to address this fan, the "mistake" of mislabeling smaller sizes is not actually true, as several retailers like Foot Locker, Finish Line, and the popular Eastbay have no semblance of women's shoes from the Curry signature line.

Days later, Riley got a handwritten response from Curry.

A young fan recently asked Steph Curry to make some of his Curry 5 sneakers available in the girls section, and his response was flawless.

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

Morrison, very matter of factly, told Curry that although she is a "big fan" of him, she hopes he can work with Under Armour to make the sneakers available in more sizes.

Riley really pulled the guilt card on Curry to fix this issue, reminding him that he has two daughters and has hosted an all-girls basketball camp. "I want to make sure you can wear my kicks proudly".

The point guard is a man of his word, and the Curry 5 is now listed under the "Girls Basketball Athletic Shoes" category on Under Armour's website. "More to come on that, but plan to be in Oakland that night!"
