Nike launches hijab collection for Muslim athletes

NEW STYLES: Zahra Lari models Nike's new hijab

NIKE have ventured further into Islamic clothing by unveiling their new hijabs designed for female Muslim athletes.

The hijab has been in development for a year and was tested by various athletes including figure Skater Zahra Lari who shared one of the first images of it on her Instagram account.

Lari, a hopeful for the Winter Olympics next year in Pyeongchang, South Korea, posted photos of herself wearing the hijab and wrote: “Can’t believe this is finally here!!

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 colours: black, grey and obsidian and goes on sale in 2018.
