Not only did Nike recently unveil an athletic line for plus size women, but the mega sportswear giant announced they are launching a high-performance hijab for Muslim athletes!
“The Nike Pro Hijab” has been a year in the making, but its impetus can be traced much further back to Nike’s founding mission, to serve athletes, with the signature addendum: If you have a body, you’re an athlete,” the brand said in a statement.
Nike’s Pro Hijab will be available in neutral colors made from lightweight polyester, and the final product will be available for sale in the company’s Spring 2018 season.
Finally, female Muslim athletes will be represented in sportswear…long overdue! GREAT JOB, NIKE!
