I've heard Loakes tend to have stiffer calfskin I was thinking I should use renovateur on them straight out of the box. I read here on the forums that they may have set in the factory for a while.
Also I don't see the point in making a new thread for this additional question. What would be the difference if my next shoes were C&J? Is it true that a MUCH larger portion of the business's costs go to quality shoe materials verses labor and overhead etc?
UPDATE: I plan to use this process
