Nike To Launch "Nike Pro Hijab" for Female Muslim Athletes

  • Posted 13 months Ago

Nike has announced that it will be launching its first ever product aimed specifically at female Muslim athletes. Called the Nike Pro Hijab, the piece is made from a lightweight mesh fabric, giving it optimal breathability and allowing the athletes to reach their full potential.

"The Nike Pro Hijab may have been more than a year in the making, but its impetus can be traced much further back, to an ongoing cultural shift that has seen more women than ever embracing sport," said Nike.

"[It was] designed as a direct result of our athletes telling us they needed this product to perform better,” added Megan Saalfeld, the Global Nike Spokeswoman, when speaking to Al Arabiya English. "We hope that it will help athletes around the world do just that."

The Nike Pro Hijab is set to be released in Spring 2018.
