If you recall, the Golden State Warriors Steph Curry had a touching moment with a young fan in November. The fan, a nine-year old girl from Napa named Riley Morrison, was a basketball player who was justifiably upset that Under Armour didn’t list Curry’s sneakers in the girls section of their website.

She wrote Curry a letter, and Curry responded, saying that he would make sure the sneaker company changed that (they did), and that he would have some gifts for her.

Those gifts came at Christmas. Morrison’s father, Chris, took to Instagram to post a video of Riley getting surprised with a Christmas package from Curry: A pair of the new Curry 6 basketball shoes. Her reaction is priceless (and smart).

Curry had also mentioned doing something for Riley at International Women’s Day, which is on March 8. So we’ll see what happens then!

In the meantime, this was a pretty special moment for one fan.
