Just over three months after nine-year-old Riley Morrison penned a letter to Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry expressing frustration that she couldn’t find any of his signature shoes in the girls’ section of Under Armour’s website, Morrison will be able to find shoes she helped Curry design. Under Armor said on Thursday night that the UA ICON Curry 6 United We Win colorway will be available beginning on International Women’s Day on March 8, and includes a personal touch from Morrison. Morrison designed different sockliners that read “Be Fearless,” “Girl Power,” “Girls Hoop Too” and “Rock The Currys.”

“I was immediately impressed when I saw Riley’s letter,” Curry said. “That a nine-year-old girl had the courage to use her voice to call attention to an issue and keep us accountable.” Morrison and her family will be special guests of Curry’s at the Warriors’ Friday night game to celebrate International Women’s Day, and chances are she will be rocking her new kicks.
