Are you ready for the new Muslim Hijab with the Nike swoosh branded on the side? According to reports, the Sports clothing manufacturer is rolling out a new line of “Muslim-friendly” sportswear which will include a hijab head covering featuring the Nike swoosh brand logo. The report indicates that this has been a long time in the making and a result of several years of advocacy and product development. The new Hijabs will be made of a light, stretchy material with an
extended cape to prevent the covering from becoming untucked during strenuous movement and the icing on the cake will be a Nike swoosh that is emblazoned prominently above the wearer’s ears. One sports athlete has already become the poster child for this new product. Zahra Lari, an Emirati figure skater, celebrated the new product telling Vogue Arabic, “People may think or tell you that you can’t do certain things, but I’m going to show them you absolutely can. I am covered, I am Muslim,” she said.
