Will using wax polish affect a shoe's breathability? Waxing a shoe makes water bead on it's surface. Hence, won't waxing (polishing using wax) a shoe essentially "seal" it off to moisture escaping from one's foot, thereby negating the benefits of a leather shoe (ie, not retaining sweat near the feet, but wicking it away/evaporating through the leather)?
