Leather Sneakers - Why They're a Better Choice

Leather Sneakers - Why They're a Better Choice Than Faux Leather or Fabric Varieties

Perhaps the most important thing you need to consider when investing in a pair of men's shoes is the material with which they are made. These days, there are a variety of materials that are used for shoes such as sneakers, including leather, faux leather, and fabric.

Real leather is made from animal hides such as cattle or buffalo, whereas faux leather is made from polyurethane or polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and isn't natural. Canvas, on the other hand, comes from cotton.

Both canvas and faux leather are extremely popular when it comes to making a fashion statement. However, when it comes to a balanced combination of comfort, durability, and style, leather sneakers rule all. In this article, we will discuss why leather sneakers are a better choice than faux leather or fabric varieties.

Why Should You Use Leather Sneakers?

Here are some reasons that make leather sneakers a better pick than faux leather or fabric varieties.

1.    Long-Lasting

Both cotton and faux-leather sneakers are not made to last like real leather. Even though they don't require the maintenance or care that real leather does, they also don't last nearly as long. What’s more is that when they start to wear out, they don't exude a vintage vibe; they simply look shoddy. They can be cleaned and protected to an extent, but not quite like real leather. 

Real leather far outperforms its counterparts in long-term endurance, and more than that, the more you use it, the better it looks. With proper care, the same wear and tear that would otherwise ruin another product helps develop character and patina in real leather. This will make your sneakers even more desirable and valuable over time. It’s safe to say that your leather sneakers will last many years to come and not just a few seasons.

2.    Weathering the Elements

Dirty sneakers might be fine for a game of frisbee or a fishing trip. However, as a fashion statement, all they’re really saying is that you, the wearer, don’t care how you present yourself to the world. The lighter the original color of the sneakers, the dirtier they tend to look. Perhaps you can toss them in the washing machine, but the stains might not come out, even after multiple attempts.

Fortunately, leather is easy to protect and maintain. If your leather sneakers get dirty, you can use a slightly damp cloth to wipe them. For stubborn stains, use some leather conditioner or soap lather. Then wipe them with a dry microfiber cloth. Your sneakers will be better protected from moisture and stains and look brand new.

3.    Comfort

Professionally made leather sneakers are incredible when it comes to protecting your feet and giving them the additional ergonomic support they need. Unlike canvas or faux leather sneakers, shoes made with fine leather will even conform to the shape of your foot over time for a much better fit.

4.    Colors and Styles

Leather sneakers are available in a vast range of colors and styles. For instance, the Estrella sneaker has a dual-color star on the sides and is a perfect match for blue jeans and canvas. Similarly, the Stilskko Sneaker perfectly matches denim and goes with casual and formal attire. The leather lining feels buttery smooth in case you want to wear these sneakers without socks.
