Nike Just Lauch ‘Pro Hijab’ For Female Muslim Athletes

Wednesday, 8 March 2017 :  Nike has created an athletic product specifically for Muslim women.

The company revealed that the “Nike Pro Hijab,” a performance head cover, will hit stores early next year.

The pull-on product is made with soft, lightweight and stretchy polyester that is both breathable and opaque. It will come in dark neutral colors and have two sizes, XS/S and M/L, in order to account for a range of face sizes and shapes.

Nike said that Emirati figure skater Zahra Lari is already wearing their design. Lari competes on the ice wearing a hijab.

Activewear options for Muslim women who wish to cover their hair in an unobtrusive and comfortable way are still hard to come by, as evidenced by a 2016 Kickstarter, or prohibited from competition, as this teenage boxer experienced firsthand last November.

It was just last year during the Rio Olympics when fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad became the first U.S. athlete to compete in a hijab. Nike’s product could increase the profile of activewear options for female athletes of all faiths.

The announcement of Nike’s athletic hijab has come just days after the company released a plus-size clothing line for women.

Apparently, when there is a need for more inclusive athletic gear and no one’s making it, Nike will just do it.
