Steph Curry to keep his promise to Riley on International Women's Day

Riley Morrison sent the Golden State Warriors star a letter in November past year, having been unable to locate the new Curry 5s under the girls section of the Under Armour website.

On Thursday, Riley Morrison was at Curry's downtown Oakland, California pop-up store to show off the brand new Curry 6 shoe - "a blend of purple and deep orchid with white", according to Under Armour - and a sock liner that she helped design, according to espnW. Stephen wrote her back, called on Under Armour himself to address the inequality and pledged to do something big on International Women's Day.

He added that some of the proceeds from the sale of the shoes will go toward a scholarship to the Stephen and Ayesha Curry Family Foundation that Under Armour will give to a high school senior in Riley's name each year.

The shoe will also raise money for a great cause.

Curry did more than that. "I hope you can work with Under Armour to change this because girls want to rock Curry 5's too".

Western Alberta unemployment rate increases to 5.1 per cent
The jobless rate, meanwhile, stayed flat at 5.8 per cent despite the job surge because more people were looking for work, too. Job creation in Canada once again blew past expectations with 56,000 positions added in February - majority were full-time.

Not only did Morrison inspire Curry to market his sneakers to women, but she also made a creative contribution by designing the inside of the new Curry 6s.

'I know you support girl athletes because you have two daughters and you host an all girls basketball camp, ' she wrote in the letter that was shared on social media.

The Curry 6 "United We Win" shoe was unveiled on March 8, 2019. "Some people were really happy for me, some people wanted to meet Steph and some people even wanted my autograph". "I just think that he's surpassed everything we thought".

Morrison says she can't describe the feeling of seeing others wearing the shoes she designed, telling CBS News' Dana Jacobson it's "a dream come true".

Curry responded on Twitter: 'Appreciate you helping us get better Riley! "The $30,000 scholarship, whose first recipient will be announced at tonight's Golden State Warriors game, is paid over two years and requires the recipient to take two or more STEM-related classes each semester while maintaining a minimum 3.0 GPA".
