Can anyone really tell me which type of tanned leather is better for making bespoke dress shoes and why? Every bespoke shoe maker I have been to pushes the chrome tanned. I have read that chrome tanned leather doesn't lose color when exposed to water, shines easier, etc. But, I think I remember reading that chrome tanned leather cracks over time where vege tanned doesn't. If anyone has any insight, I would appreciate the education.
