Nike rollout Pro Sports Hijab for Muslim Female Athletes


DA Money Maker — In response to complaints from Muslim women on the difficulty in wearing the traditional hijab during sports activities, Nike has created a sport hijab joining Dolce & Gabana’s Abaya Collection and retailer H & M on a long list of clothing companies who design specifically for Muslim women.

As part of its women's day celebration Nike unveiled its close fitting, lightweight and polyester sports Hijab specially made for Muslim female athletes who choose to cover their hair during sports activity.
The Pro Hijab is much sleeker than the loose black hoodie looking hijab worn by Muslim Egyptian mountain climber Manal Rostom who featured in a 2015 Nike advertisement.

Commenting on the newly released hijab Manal Rostom said “I was thrilled and a bit emotional to see Nike prototyping a Hijab,” “Once I put it on and took it for a spin on the ice, I was blown away by its fit and light weight.” she said.
The Pro Hijab with its distinctive Nike swoosh come in different neutral colors and took the sportswear company  13 months to make.

Nike stores in the Middle East and other Muslim majority countries will start sales of the Pro Hijab by spring of 2018.
