For those complaining about the #nikehijab,You try gyming with a normal hijab and feel the heat of jahanam on your head. I’m happy tbh.
Nike becomes first major brand to launch hijab for women
Nike’s new hijab is designed to make sport more comfortable for women and went on sale in 2018.
The light fabric has tiny holes for breathability and the length has also been designed to stop it coming untucked during activity.
Nike said it had been developing the new sporting hijab for a year.
Sporting hijabs have been around for several years, but Nike is the first major international company to embrace the sports needs of women who wear hijabs for religious or cultural reasons.
Small sporting brands such as Capsters and ResportOn have previously been seen as leading brands of sporting hijabs.
Response online to the hijab has been mostly positive.
But some hijab wearers have questioned Nike’s decision to make branded hijabs.
United Arab Emirates athlete Zahra Lari has modelled the Nike hijab and posted a photo of herself wearing Nike sportswear to mark International Women’s Day.
She is the first ever figure skater to compete internationally and hopes to represent the UAE in the 2018 Winter Olympics.
