Nike debuts with a Nike Pro Hijab for female Muslim Athletes. Designed with the needs of female Muslim athletes in mind, the Nike Pro Hijab took over a year to develop and was tested by several leading athletes, such as figures skater Zahra Lari and Nike+ run Club Coach Manal Rostom. Prior to developing its first prototype Nike spoke to Muslim female athletes, like Amna Al Haddad, a professional weightlifter, to ensure its performance Hijab fulfilled their needs and concerns. After testing its prototype hijabs, Nike's Pro team then worked to ensure the performance hijab functioned similarly to its other products. The Nike Pro Hijab is set to launch in Nike stores across the globe next year in time for Spring 2018.
