Morrison was in search of a new pair of sneakers to kick off her basketball season, and was disappointed that her shoe of choice - Steph Curry's signature Curry 5s - weren't available in girl's sizes. "I am a big fan of yours", the letter began.

Although the Warriors were without Steph Curry and Draymond Green, the Toronto Raptors clash with Golden State was one of the most hyped in the early portion of the National Basketball Association season.

And true to Curry's word, the 5s are, as of Thursday afternoon, listed under the girls' section on Under Armour's website.

The contest fell during the NBA's tribute to legendary basketball sideline reporter and personality Craig Sager, who lost his battle with cancer almost two years ago.

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

Riley's father, Chris, tweeted the letter to actress and equality advocate Emma Watson, and in no time Curry was aware of Under Armour's error - and was doing something about it. "I know you support girl athletes because you have two daughters and you host an all girls basketball camp".

"Hey Riley, I appreciate your concern and have spent the last 2 days talking to Under Armour about how we can fix the issue".

Curry was quick to respond, saying "We are correcting this now!"

For the Curry 6, which launches Christmas Day, the box will also reflect the co-gendered sizing as opposed to implying the shoes were only in boys' sizes, said Dean Stoyer, a spokesperson for the company.

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

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.

In the 10 games that Curry has missed, the Warriors are 5-5.

Not only did Curry talk to Under Armour about fixing the problem (and getting the shoes categorised correctly on the website), he's going to send her a pair of the shoes she wanted, plus a pair of his newest design.

In August, he wrote an impassioned essay entitled "This Is Personal" about women's equality and inclusion, making clear his determination to "close the opportunity and pay gap", explaining how his two daughters meant he was "feeling more driven than ever to help out women who are working toward progress".
