Are the chukka still available?

The solution to that sloppy feel is to have a third eyelet added to the chukka as I have done to all mine: Color 8, Black, Cigar, & Whiskey (all shell cordovan).

Not a chip as per say, more than likely, this is the joint/ joining of the opposite ends of the welt.

Snuff Suede Chukkas for casual Friday....love these boots, they mold to your feet throughout the day and actually get more comfortable the more you are on your feet:

I know I'd be giving up some ability to wear the boots for dressier occasions but I don't mind that.  Has anybody attempted something like this themselves?

I saved the following quote from a couple hundred or so pages ago. Should still work. I apologize that I did not record the name of who did it.

I first sanded off the black with a 140 grade sandpaper. This took about an hour to do and caused at least one blister on my thumb. After this was finished I re-sanded again with a fine grain 220 sandpaper and this made the leather really smooth. I then took some Meletonian medium brown shoe cream and rubbed it into the exposed leather. I did this twice and then buffed with a brush. After this I took some darker brown cream and did the same thing (just the medium brown gave the edge a orange color but adding the darker brown gave it almost an antique look). I made sure the cream had dried and then I applied two coats of a satin finish polyurethane that I got from Lowes. It took about 2 hours total time.
