When Riley and her dad went to the Under Armour site and looked for Curry 5's in her size, they couldn't find any in the girls' section.

Curry, a father of two daughters, took time to respond to Riley with his own hand written letter, in which he explained that the issue is being taken care of now and that he will be sending her a pair of Curry 5s.

After promising to correct the issue right away, the guard gifted Riley with a pair of Curry 5s while promising her she will be among the first kids to sport the Curry 6 signature sneakers once they are announced. Curry also invited his young fan to join him at a special event planned March 8 for International Women's Day.

Within a few hours of Curry's tweet, fans already noticed that Under Armour had updated their website to reflect the changes Riley requested.

"Unfortunately we have labelled the smaller sizes as "boys" on the website".

A letter to Curry by a young girl named Riley from Napa in California pointed out that the National Basketball Association star's signature shoe - Curry 5 - was not available under the "girls" section on the Under Armour website.

But fortunately for the Warriors, Curry will return for their next game - against the Pistons on Saturday.

And people say the art of letter writing is dead.

And there's more - he's planning something for International Women's Day in March, and wants Riley to come. In an August opinion piece for the Players' Tribune, Curry wrote he hoped his two daughters - one of whom is coincidentally also named Riley - could "grow up knowing that there are no boundaries that can be placed on their futures, period".

"More to come on that, but plan to be in Oakland on that night!"

"I want our girls to grow up knowing that there are no boundaries that can be placed on their futures, period".
