Nike unveils hijab for Muslim athletes
BEAVERTON, Ore. — Nike has unveiled a hijab for Muslim female athletes.
The Nike Pro Hijab has been in development for a year, the company said. Athletes contributed input into the product, and figure skater Zahra Lari was among those who tested it.
The pull-on hijab is made of light, stretchy fabric that includes tiny holes for breathability and an elongated back so it will not come untucked. It will come in three colors: black, vast grey and obsidian.
“Can’t believe this is finally here!!” she wrote.
Beaverton-based Nike says the hijab will be available for sale next year.
