Nike is going where other sports brands have not ventured – apparel for women Muslim athletes. To that end, the company is introducing the Nike Pro Hijab, a performance head covering.

USA Today reported that Nike is making the Pro Hijab out of a thin polyester material, available in both dark and neutral colors. It includes miniscule holes for breathability and is longer in the back so it doesn’t come untucked during competition. Nike developed the product after complaints by Muslim athletes about wearing traditional head scarves during competition.

The story stated that skater Zahra Lari, of the United Arab Emirates, posted that she is “super excited” to be involved in Nike’s campaign and is already wearing the hijab on the ice.
