Usually, dendrobiums are divided into groups depending on their growing conditions.

As far as popularity goes, dendrobium orchids are second only to Phalaenopsis, and out of all the dendrobium colors, Blue Dendrobium Orchids seem to have become rather popular.

Of course, a more accurate source of inspiration of this sneaker’s color scheme would undoubtedly be Jordan Brand’s previous “Patone” releases. The uppers of this GS-exclusive sneaker is made up of smooth and tumbled leather. These uppers are entirely covered in the Still Blue hue that this iteration gets its nickname from. To contrast with the all-Blue uppers, clean White appears over its heel and tongue branding, and its heel tabs, while its midsoles are also completely covered in plain White. Adding the finishing touch, this sneaker is also equipped with icy outsoles. The Air Jordan 6 GS “Still Blue” should still be available at a price of $140 at select Jordan Brand retailers.
