Interesting. I only have one pair of crocodile loafers. I generally only wear them in Summers, however, as they are a bit brash for my general tastes. I Reno them once at the beginning of the season, and then at the end (before storing them). I may hit them with some conditioner mid-season if they are getting considerable wear, but that's about it. I planned on periodically conditioning the belt. Should I be treating them differently?
