For the young athlete or outdoor adventurer in your life, Nike athletic wear for girls has features to keep her feeling her best. Moisture-wicking technology prevents sweat build-up, breathable fabric cools the body during intense bouts of play and styles are versatile enough to go from playground to classroom.

Whether you're shopping for shorts, sports bras, T-shirts or hoodies, read on for the best Nike athletic wear for girls ages 7 to 15.

Moisture-wicking Nike T-shirts for Girls

Whether she's shooting hoops or playing in PE, Nike T-shirts come in a relaxed fit to keep the girl in your life moving. Many shirts feature Nike Dri-FIT fabric, which feels cool next to the skin and wicks away sweat.

Discover dozens of designs to match her personal style. Some feature playful graphics, while others sport an always-classic Swoosh. Pick a standard fit or a boxy cropped tee, which pairs well with leggings or high-rise trousers and provides extra airflow on warm days.

If you're purchasing her first sports bra, consider prioritising comfort. Sports bras in the Nike Indy collection feature thin straps and smooth fabric for a barely-there feel, while the Nike Swoosh line offers support with a snug fit and thick straps to eliminate pressure points.

Many of these sports bras are ideal for athletics, thanks to Nike Dri-FIT Technology, which wicks away sweat. They come in either light or medium support and sizes from XS to XL, with extended sizing up to 41.5 inches (105cm approx.).
