Steph Curry has launched a new sports shoe for girls on International Women's Day.
The Golden State Warriors player designed the sneakers alongside nine-year-old Riley Morrison, who wrote to him asking why his Icon 5 line only carried boys' sizes.

The Icon 6 "United We Win" comes in dark purple with a drawing of two girls holding a basketball on the sock liner.
"Rock the Currys," "Girl Power" and "Be Bold" are inscribed on the liner. A pair costs US$130 (NZ$191.07).
Riley designed the sock liner herself and said she was very happy she wrote the original letter in November 2018.
"It's been amazing. It's a really special experience. I never imagined that this would happen," she said.
Under Armour, the company that makes the sneakers, said the money raised from their sale will go toward a college scholarship for a girl in the bay area.
"The $30,000 scholarship, which will be announced annually around International Women's Day, is paid over two years and requires the recipient to take two or more STEM-related classes each semester while maintaining a minimum 3.0 GPA," the company said in a statement.
