As part of the Nike Kobe 9 reveal in Los Angeles on Wednesday, members of the media were also introduced to the Nike Kobe 2 "Prelude". The second shoe in the Nike Kobe "Prelude Pack", the Kobe 2 is given a marble treatment to give the shoe a classic look that looks more in place on a museum than on a basketball court.

During the 2006-07 NBA season, Kobe Bryant went on a scoring tear, finishing with at least 50 in four consecutive games at one point, including a 65-point against the Portland Trail Blazers. The Kobe 2 "Prelude" highlights that achievement with an inscription of the moment on the shoe's sockliner.

Other design details in the Renaissance-inspired Nike Kobe 2 "Prelude" include the elegant marble grey finish all throughout the upper coupled with a white swoosh. Metallic gold accents the swoosh and can also be found on the eyelets and the Kobe logo on the back of the shoe.

The Nike Kobe 2 "Prelude" will be available at select Nike locations on Dec. 14, one week after the launch of the Nike Kobe 1 "Prelude". Every week until the retail debut of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite "Masterpiece", a new Kobe "Prelude" sneaker will drop, covering Kobe's entire signature line with Nike.
