When it comes to boots, I always have the question in my mind, is it better to spend a little more money and buy boots made with leather or buy boots made of synthetic materials? I recently purchased a pair of boots from Macy's only to try them on with socks and realize they're a little snug. While online window shopping this morning, I came across a very similar pair from Old Navy for about half the price. Now the question is: buy leather boots which may last longer or spend less money for synthetic boots? Here are the boots in question: Macy's or Old Navy.
