Last year, Nike made headlines when the athleisure apparel brand announced that it would be creating a sports hijab specifically engineered for female Muslim athletes who often struggled to find a garb that wasn’t made of a heavy (and often sweaty) material that obstructs hearing, which could affect one’s game.
After months of anticipation (and even a fashion cover moment), the Nike Pro Hijab is finally available for purchase on online shopping platform Zalora Malaysia.
The Nike Pro Hijab is constructed from the Nike Pro power mesh, Nike’s most breathable fabric, and provides full coverage while allowing for maximum airflow and breathability in the garment via strategically placed holes.
Its single layer, lightweight polyester fabrication makes it a much lighter alternative to the traditional designs, while “fluff threads” at the neck minimise irritation. What’s more, the Nike Pro hijab is also ultra-durable and retains its quality even after rounds of extensive wash testing (up to 40+ washes).
Available in sizes XS/S and M/L to allow perfect fit on a range of head sizes and face shapes, the Nike Pro Hijab can be found on Zalora Malaysia from 15 February 2018 onwards at RM99 each.
