March 8 marks International Women’s Day and to celebrate, Under Armour is releasing a special pair of signature sneakers for its most prominent basketball player.
Unlike past editions of Steph Curry’s signature kicks, these will have a special design, in honor of Riley Morrison, a 9-year-old girl who wrote a letter to Curry last summer about how his last pair of shoes do not have available women’s sizes.
According to a release, Morrison helped design some details on the upcoming sneakers, which feature a purple, deep orchid, and white color scheme.
“In addition to a “United We Win” sockliner, Riley designed a sockliner that features two girls playing basketball, surrounded by the words that inspired Riley to play the role of a Uniter, such as “Be Fearless,” “Girl Power,” “Be the Change,” Girls Hoop Too,” and “Rock the Currys.”
The proceeds will go towards a scholarship that Stephen and Ayesha Curry Family Foundation and Under Armour created in her honor.
