What are the real advantages of leather?
Real leather lasts longer and ages better than synthetics over time.
If you live in a rainy city, the water will also damage the synthetics much quicker than shoes with a higher quality build. Chances are if they are using low quality synthetic leather wholesale, the other components and overall comfort/design of the shoe are not great either.
Dress shoes that are under $100 are examples of this. They might feel good at first, but after six months it will start to break down and it'll never feel as comftorable as a high quality brand. I used to buy a new pair of dress shoes for work ($90-$120 range) every year until I spent the money and invested in a high quality $300 pair that is still with me for almost five years now.
In motorcycle gear, leather offers better protection against abrasion when compared to synthetic materials (textiles).
