What is better for men's boots - synthetic or leather?

Leather Boots vs. Synthetic Boots

Even though more people prefer leather boots, not everyone knows the characteristics which sets leather apart from synthetic material.
In terms of comfort, boots made from a synthetic material will be “broken in” faster than boots made from leather. This is because synthetic material loses its shape quicker than leather. In this regard, leather men's boots might seem less comfortable initially, but they will last much longer than synthetic men's boots.
Both leather or synthetic boots can vary in price. In situations where leather boots cost more than the synthetic boots, this is due to the leather having to be prepared before being used to create the boot, whereas synthetic material is available in abundance since it is created in a laboratory. Therefore, synthetic material is a “cheaper” quality material than leather.
Based on this, by initially buying synthetic boots, this can lead to paying more in the end, when you have to continually replace them.
