Nike Hijabs

Nike To Sell Hijabs

Nike is branching out to a whole new world. The sneaker and sports apparel company announced they will soon begin selling the Nike “Pro Hijab” for Muslim women athletes. The “Hijab” is a traditional head dress that Muslim women wear in public. According to Nike, the head cover will be a single-layer pull-on design made from super lightweight polyester. The company says the tiny holes in the fabric will make it breathable while remaining opaque, which is a requirement for women who wear the hijab. Emirati figure skater Zahra Lari currently wears the Nike “Pro Hijab” and the company said their final hijab product will go on sale next year.
