The Nike swimwear collection delivers the same quality, comfort and performance that helped establish the brand as a worldwide leader in sports footwear and clothing.

These core principles are evident in the Nike swimsuit range, which features an extensive selection of competitive swimwear and equipment for men, women and kids.

Women and girls looking to buy a Nike swimming costume can choose from a wide selection of swimsuits ranging from race suits to comfortable and stylish Nike two piece swimsuits in striking colours and designs.

We also have the full collection of Nike swimsuits, jammers, swim shorts and swim briefs for men and boys. All sizes and designs are in stock now.

As Nike Swim’s reputation grows in both competitive and fitness swimming circles, more and more swimmers are choosing Nike swimwear, swim goggles, swim caps and swimming bags.

Nike Launches New Swimwear Line Designed For Women Who Wear A Hijab

Nike has launched new swimwear designed for athletes who wear a hijab. Through the new Nike Victory Swim Collection, women can choose from a full body swimsuit or individual pieces including a swimming hijab, a tunic top and leggings.

“Too often,” the company said in a statement, “swimwear represented a barrier, rather than a conduit to enjoying the water.”

The new line will be available for sale online starting Feb. 1, and at some retailers in California, New York City, London and Dubai, the company announced Tuesday.

“The more we listened, the more possibility we saw to serve female athletes in new dimensions,” Martha Moore, Nike Creative Director, said in a public statement. “We’re excited to inspire more women to see themselves in sport by thinking creatively and designing inclusively.”

The new line follows the launch of the Nike Pro Hijab in December 2017, an answer, the company says, to athlete’s trouble with finding a suitable hijab.

Zahra Lari, a figure skater from the United Arab Emirates, reviewed the new swimwear line for Nike. “It doesn’t weigh you down, and it helped me swim better,” she said. “It’s so different than any of the swimsuits I’ve ever seen, and I know I can wear this confidently.”

Nike launched a line of full-body swimsuits, complete with a hijab head-covering, on Tuesday, debuting the “Victory Swim Collection” merchandise via an online ad release.

In a video pushing the full-body swimwear, swimming women covered head-to-toe gush over the Nike products that make them feel “like a superhero.”

“This suit is gonna take us to a different level, because it’s not even just Muslim women, it’s a lot of women who are modest, as well,” two of the women featured in the ad collectively say.

“I feel super light,” a swimmer praises.

“I’m not even gonna lie,” another woman in the ad says, “I feel like a superhero.”

“The collection, which includes the Nike Victory Full-Coverage Swimsuit along with swim separate options — the Nike Victory Swim Hijab, the Nike Victory Swim Tunic Top and the Nike Victory Swim Leggings — brings performance innovation to modest swimwear,” Nike captioned their video ad online.

A statement posted on the company’s website ironically boasted of the swimwear’s “freedom of weightlessness.”

“Its sleek, innovative silhouette provide a game-changing option for female athletes seeking full coverage and full range of motion in the water,” Nike said.

“As designers continued learning from athletes across diverse communities, they saw a striking gap in apparel for water sports — specifically, a lack of options for female athletes who don’t want to choose between modesty and movement with comfort and confidence,” the statement continued. “Existing products were lacking in either coverage or functionality, athletes shared, leaving them feeling weighted down by baggy garments, battling drag instead of striving toward personal bests or worrying about whether their hijabs and coverings would remain in place.”

As noted by Time magazine, the Victory Swim Collection “will be available for sale online starting Feb. 1, and at some retailers in California, New York City, London, and Dubai.”

Nike was notoriously plagued with public relations-related issues in the 1990s and early 2000s for apparent sweatshop manufacturing. As recently as 2017, the same concerns popped back up, Quartz reported at the time:

Now, Nike’s sweatshop problem is threatening a comeback. On July 29, students and activists around the world participated in a day of protest against Nike, organized by United Students Against Sweatshops (USAS). The demonstrations, in cities such as Boston, Washington D.C., Bangalore, and San Pedro Sula in Honduras, represented an escalation of allegations against Nike that have been slowly bubbling up.

The athletic giant “was hit with claims that workers at a Nike contract factory in Hansae, Vietnam, suffered wage theft and verbal abuse, and labored for hours in temperatures well over the legal limit of 90 degrees, to the point that they would collapse at their sewing machines,” Quartz noted, adding that Nike was “accused of cutting jobs at the Hansae factory and pulling production from a factory in Honduras with a strong union presence, resulting in hundreds of workers losing vital jobs.”

In September of 2018, Nike made controversial anthem-kneeler and former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick the face of its brand, as reported by The Daily Wire. Kaepernick has claimed that he is being colluded against by the NFL and possibly President Donald Trump, to keep him out of the league.
