I think it really is more for if you enjoy the texture shining through as you polish. Pigskin polishes to a very nice finish, IMO. I'm sorry to hear yours were stiff and wore badly. All of the pigskin I have encountered in my day has been quite soft. Granted, I have only handled a few pairs and none from G&G.
