I am very happy with my new Reebok Walk Ultra IV DMX Max walking shoes. I have purchased this Reebok walking shoe many times over the years. I have tried other brands, but they don't compare to Reebok. For my feet these are the best! All of that being said........I don't think all of the upper shoe is leather. The description said "Leather Upper". There seems to be some faux leather on the upper shoe. This would not keep me from buying these shoes but it is disappointing. The pair I had before the new pair seemed the same way.
