  Q: I've just had my leather sole replaced, any tips?

  A: updated (02/02/2012)

Not many :). As you may know, using a leather sole in wet conditions can be hazardous - speaking as someone who has ended up flat on their face during a number of occasions during a downpour. Not only does a new leather sole not provide much grip, wet conditions are not healthy for the longevity of a new leather sole. A 'bedding' in of a new leather sole in dry conditions is advisable: it helps the sole pick up dirt and grit, and form a crude but effective protective layer against harsher weather conditions.
