Or any athletic shoes for that matter...
Adidas Mundial Team (=> genuine kangaroo leather)Or any athletic shoes for that matter...
...Plus they are awesome casual shoes with shorts or jeans for just hanging out.
I wish Adidas would release Gazelles that look like the Mexicanas from the 70s, those were my walking around shoes.Can't agree. Of all the nice looking soccer/football shoes that can be worn casually, those aren't among the best. If that's the look you want, just go with Gazelles and be done with it. Not strictly soccer/football (or leather), but the same look and they go with everything.
... in your opinion.
Gazelles are nice but, like opinions (and a**holes), everyone has them, while Mundials show you're a real athlete.
=> *my* opinion.

Leather does feel better and more stable once they are broken-in. I understand the manufacturers using synthetics because it will be easier to control the quality and durability.
Lighter may mean less durability. With synthetics, it is easier to find that balance between the two.The tradeoff with leather is usually weight. Tennis shoes are somewhat heavy in general, so even if the synthetics aren't as comfortable or supple, they must think it is worth it for the lighter weight.
