Should I condition my new Loakes before trying them on or putting in the trees?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

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

I usually put some wax on new shoes because I'm bound to scuff them. But I don't see the need to condition them before you wear unless they look dry. Just wear them and break them in.
