Kanye’s anti-Nike tirades may have introduced a few of you to Mark Parker, but those of us in the know have been hip to the design god for a while now. This year he’s contributing some heat to the Air Max Day festivities in the form of an all-new running shoe.

The Nike Air Max Ultra M is an Air Max BW-inspired model, and takes the model's clean lines and mixes them up with a few of Mark’s older designs. The model blends mesh, hyperfuse and leather with some cool gradient effects that seamlessly blend from blue to black. It’s a great new spin on one of Nike’s boldest styles from one of their most celebrated designers--no big deal right?

The Nike Air Max Ultra M is available now at Nike as well as a handful of select retailers.
