Editor’s Notes: Back in November, nine-year-old Riley Morrison penned a letter to Golden State Warriors’ star point guard Stephen Curry expressing frustration that she couldn’t find any of his signature sneakers in the girls section of Under Armour’s website.
With March 8 noted as International Women’s Day, Stephen Curry and Under Armour addressed the gender inequality in a big way by unveiling this UA ICON Curry 6 “United We Win,” which includes a personal touch from Riley Morrison.
The sneaker’s colorway that blends purple and deep orchid with white is also reflective of International Women’s Day, as purple is the internationally recognized color to symbolize women, according to the IWD website.
