Love the look of these sneakers. They are comfortable as well. Before ordering them, I looked them up on the Skechers Canada website and it said "synthetic upper". I nevertheless ordered these hoping it was a mistake and this website was correct. Not so. I received them today and sure enough, they aren't leather. They don't smell like leather and the shoe tongue says "synthetic upper". Will be returning because I can't wear shoes/boots that aren't breathable. If I do, my feet get uncomfortably hot and sweaty. I'm so disappointed.
