Are white leather boots more likely to scuff/look bad with wear?

I saw this really beautiful pair of white leather boots by YSL: vassili zipped boots in smooth leather

I do worry about the color though. I currently have a pair of the YSL Harness boots, and they've held up really well so far, but they're black. For anyone here who has a pair of white boots, do you find they hold up well and still look good even after being worn for a while and all that? Or do they get scuffed and messed up real easily? My fear is them being white means they're gonna look worse faster, and not hold up as well visually as a pair of black boots would, or is this fear unfounded? I've always heard this said about white sneakers for instance, that they generally show wear worse than black shoes, and scuff and get dirty much more easily.

the are more likely, to look gaudy, unless scratched than, they look like a run down boot for a male prostitute.

I don't think they're more likely to scuff, but scuffs will be more noticeable. If I had those boots I'd save them for occasions where I'm going to be mainly indoors with less opportunities to scuff them.
