"Lastly, we have something special in the works for International Women's Day on March 8th, and I want you to celebrate with me".

The three-time National Basketball Association champion went one step further too, hinting at giving some special recognition to young female basketballers like Riley in the new year.

Riley's letter got Curry's attention.

On Thursday, Curry tweeted his handwritten response to Riley, pledging to have smaller sizes of his shoe appropriately listed in the girls' section. As Riley noted in her letter, the Under Armour site offers a number of Curry 5 colorways for boys, including the option to customize, but there are none for sale under the girl's section.

The Under Armour website has officially been update, and the Curry 5 sneakers can be found in the Girls' Basketball Athletic Shoes section HERE.

'Not happy about it': Trump fumes as 15,000 auto jobs slip away
Mr Kudlow, who met with Ms Barra on Monday, said Mr Trump felt betrayed by GM, which the Government had been trying to help. That may have played a role in the decision to lay off what amounts to 8 percent of GM's global workforce .

That wasn't all: He invited her to a game. The Warriors are getting superstar guard Stephen Curry back this weekend, but won't have him for this high-powered bout. The head-to-head matchup between Kawhi Leonard and Kevin Durant alone was worth the price of admission, as the Raptors' main man put up a season-high 37 points while Durant went off for 51 - his third straight game with 40-plus points.

She talked to Teen Vogue about why she wrote the letter, and said that it wasn't just about her getting to wear the sneakers - she wanted all girls to have the same chance that boys do.

Can't miss first: The Raptors led by as many as 18 points in the first quarter, their biggest advantage of the night, and were up 38-25 after 12 minutes. And that the problem was being corrected.

Furthermore, Riley will not only receive a pair of Curry 5's and Curry 6's for her efforts, but the basketball star issued a mysterious invitation to join him in Oakland for a special event on International Women's Day.

It's always surprising that a professional basketball player - or any pro athlete - would take the time to respond to a kid's letter. I want them to grow up in a world where their gender does not feel like a rulebook for what they should think, or be, or do.
