From the sports giant that is known for breaking barriers comes the Nike sport hijab, said to be one of the "most important" designs of the year. Developed with female Muslim athletes and designed to encourage more women into sport, this piece is about more than sportswear.
Breaking barriers with the Nike sport hijab
Born from the desire to empower women in sport regardless of their background or beliefs, the Nike sport hijab further emphasises the Nike philosophy - that anyone with a body can be an athlete. A year in the making, the sport hijab was tried and tested by pro female Muslim athletes, from a figure skater and a fencer to a weightlifter and a boxer. It was then developed with the brand's signature high tech Nike Pro prowess to make it lightweight, soft and breathable. It signifies a new dawn in sportswear and aims to encourage more Muslim women to get involved with sport.
Styling the Nike sport hijab
Crafted in a stretchy, mesh fabric that allows your head to breathe, the Nike sport hijab aims to keep you cool and not hinder your performance. Whether you're running, lifting weights or taking an exercise class, the hijab is designed to tuck into your sports top or zip-up, so it stays in place regardless of how much you push your body. Style it with performance wear basics such as compression leggings and tops to thrash all your fitness goals, or wear it with comfy running leggings and athleisurewear jackets if you're just starting your sports journey.
