Curry tells Un­der Ar­mour to mar­ket his shoes to girls

The Wichita Eagle - - Calendar -

NBA su­per­star Steph Curry and a young fan from Cal­i­for­nia have pushed Un­der Ar­mour to in­clude girls in the mar­ket­ing and sales of the bas­ket­ball star’s sig­na­ture shoe.

Un­til re­cently, Un­der Ar­mour’s web­site listed the Curry 5 as an op­tion in the menus for men, women and boys. Though the shoe’s sizes are the same for all kids re­gard­less of gen­der, it wasn’t listed for girls.

Ear­lier this week, a 9year-old Cal­i­for­nia girl named Ri­ley Mor­ri­son wrote an open let­ter to Curry, posted on­line by her fa­ther, in which she says she was dis­ap­pointed to see the shoes were listed only for boys.

Curry, who has been with the Bal­ti­more-based com­pany since 2013, was quick to re­spond. Thurs­day he posted a let­ter say­ing,“We are cor­rect­ing this now!”
