I don't really know what I was referring when I wrote that. I'm sure I was thinking of the propensity to crease across the vamp. Because the upper is so exposed so to speak, they are subject to cuts, scraps, and scratches. No more so than any other style I suppose. Use your own judgement.
I prefer shoes with more external features, brogueing etc.
