Horween Chaomis Leather – Care and Wear

I am contemplating purchasing a pair of shoes in Horween Chamois leather. Difficulty is that the Horween has no care guidelines posted on their site. I called the shoemaker and they said treat it like suede (which does not seem right, I have samples and it’s not like suede), and I have not been able to find any care guidelines on this forum or with my cruddy Google Fu.

I want them for boat shoes, (Quoddy), but I’ll go with another leather if I can’t figure out how to treat the Chaomis or understand how it will wear as it’s a significant investment that I’d like to last. They wont be worn in the snow or salt if that helps.

Thanks for listening.
