    To me, shoes are never fully broken in until they have been walked in while wet. (i.e. in the rain, getting the sole wet, etc.) That really gets them to mold to your feet. None of my better shoes have ever been worse for wear for having become wet. As long as I let them air dry, use shoe trees, use cream polish and little little wax now (and water proofing spray on suede) and then they look great for many, many years.

    Huh...really? Some time ago, I got caught in a downpour, my shoes got wet, started to make squelchy sounds with every step. Bubbles started to appear on the edges of the welt with every squishy step I took. I came home, took em off and put them down the garbage chute. They were FUCKED.

    I guess it wasn´t a pair of EG? Just curious, why did you thrash them instead of letting them dry and see if they were ok?

    I'm not encouraging anyone to soak their shoes. Getting wet from normal walking in the rain is what I meant. But, even then, I have had high quality shoes get soaking wet and they recovered well. But they had been properly polished, conditioned before wearing in the rain and then allowed to air dry without heat once wet.

    I must admit, my EG Berkeley's are by far the most comfortable shoes that I've worn.

    Admittedly, whenever they are worn in the rain, I panic slightly, but after letting them dry (away from a fierce heat source, naturally!) I know that with a little loving polish, they will return to their former glory. Keeping the soles in good condition - by not neglecting them when I polish the uppers - will also help to keep their longevity.

    I feel that any minor marks or water spots will eventually develop into a wonderful patina.

    My top tip for polishing shoes: take your time, use quality products as befits Edward Green, and enjoy a nice single malt at the same time.
