Ugh, I had hoped it wouldn't rain today, but it did and I was forced to go out to grab lunch today, thus in the processing getting my calf C&Js somewhat wet. I'm sure this has been asked ad nauseam, and I've already wiped them down as best as I could with some paper towels, but how can minimize the spotting? Some Reno, a thin layer of wax, and some vigorous brushing? This is going to sound counter-intuitive ... but listen: just let go. Don't do anything special - let them dry normally and brush after they are dry. Just polish as normal on your regular routine. Don't lather on reno/lexol. The shoes will be fine. They won't disintegrate.
