Martin boots are most commonly crusty and soft leather, hard leather is generally glossy, soft leather is matte. Many people will prefer hard leather because the shape of the boot shape is more three-dimensional and shapely, but soft leather Martin boots will be more dated and better worn after wearing for a long time.
