In their February 2017 campaign video, 'What Will They Say About You?', Nike featured Middle Eastern women athletes competing in running, soccer, boxing, swimming and other sports. Just a few weeks later, the brand announced that they would be releasing the Nike Pro Hijab for Muslim women in spring 2018.

What do we think about the news? It's about time, Nike.

Like Nike's other performance gear, the hijab will be stylish, lightweight, and breathable. Athletes like Amna Al Haddad played a large role in the design process. 

Here's a first look a the Nike Pro Hijab. Scroll down to check out the 'What Will They Say About You' campaign video.
