Should I soak my raw denim?

So, I acquired my first pair of raw denims and I'm wondering whether I should soak them, since someone told me that you only need to soak unsanforized raw denims, which are usually pretty expensive. The pair I bought were pretty cheap (H&M, I know they're not the best quality-wise, but like I said, it's my very first pair), so does that mean I probably shouldn't soak them?
And if I DID have to soak them, what's the best way to do it? Just put them on and sit in the bathtub for an hour?
