Nike Pro Hijab

Nike Pro Hijab

Nike Pro Hijab is a piece of sports wear specifically designed for female Muslim athletes. Nike has announced the product will be made available in Spring 2018, with the choice of three different colors. The sports hijab is expected to cost $35. [3]

The Pro Hijab is a collaboration between Muslim athletes in the Middle East – and the timing of Nike highlighting diversity in sports.

[4]

Nike has taken part in an ever increasing market of sports wear for Muslim women. [0]

Design

The pull-on hijab took 13 months to create and is made of light, stretchy fabric that includes tiny holes for breathability and an elongated back so it will not come untucked.

The hijab is made of a lightweight, stretchy mesh polyester and will come in gray, black and obsidian.

[7]

Nike said it was inspired to introduce a performance hijab line after watching Sarah Attar of Saudi Arabia at the 2012 Olympics. [6]
