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?

Many have, there's even a thread about it. The tricky part is that you can't recolor the top of the welt. If you can live with that, you can do the edges now and change the welt when you resole somewhere down the line.

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).

In what color?

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:
