Under Armour Drops Special Stephen Curry Colorway for International Women’s Day

Three and a half months after nine-year-old Riley Morrison implored Stephen Curry to convince Under Armour to sell versions of his signature sneaker for girls, the Golden State Warriors' two-time NBA MVP and the apparel company have delivered again—just in time for International Women's Day.

On Friday, Under Armour released the UA ICON Curry 6 United We Win colorway. The purple, deep orchid and white edition of Steph's shoe features a special sockliner, designed by Riley, that includes two girls playing basketball while surrounded by inspirational phrases like "Girl Power," "Be Fearless," "Girls Hoop Too," "Rock the Currys" and "Be the Change."

The United We Win is available now through UA.com and at the SC30 x Oakland pop-up shop in downtown Oakland for $130. Sales of the new shoe will go towards a $30,000 scholarship—established in Riley's honor by the Stephen and Ayesha Curry Family Foundation and Under Armour—for a college-bound female student from the Bay Area who excels in a STEM-related course of study.
