Stop worrying so much. The leather is Horween chromexcel, which is insanely robust. Use neat's foot oil for conditioning when you need (that is what Horween used before they shipped the leather to Wolverine), but, really, that should be done quarterly only. Just get a brush and buff the hell out of them to minimize scratches. But, again, chromexcel is not a dress leather, so the scuffs add up to character.
