    I have a pair of PS Chukka boots (Made In Italy) which I adore a lot and has been great for the past two years. I abused them quite a lot and now I'm looking into recrafting them as I have more shoes to rotate now. Is it possible to revive the original suede color and resole these with leather soles?

    The suede can't really be revived. However they can be cleaned. Any competent cobbler can convert them to leather soles.

    Carry on wearing them, nothing better that such shoes for informal occasions.
