Power to move.

Following pics of a plus-size sportswear line, Nike’s offering is about to get even more inclusive. The brand has announced it is launching a professional sportswear hijab.

The Nike Pro Hijab was first teased in a viral video campaign last month and is set to be released in 2018.

In a statement, the brand detailed how it has seen an ongoing cultural shift that’s resulted in more women than ever embracing sport.

The Pro Hijab has been over a year in the making and will be delivered in a lightweight mesh fabric, with strategically placed holes for optimal breathability. 

This is the first time Nike has released an item specifically for Muslim women and for this, we applaud.
