I have taken my boots of which the picture I showed you and cut the chains off and now have the armor so I don't need the chains anymore plus I have been told the boots I have will suffice with a little modding done to them so I shall begin so if you see the picture of the boots imagine them without chains and you can see that they will look good when I am done with them and I will post pictures as soon as I am able.

My boots have zippers on the right side of the left boot and on the left side of the right boot. So my question is this how should I cover those up so they don't show?

If they're on the inside you're not too bad. If they are ankle boots, you could just add spats to help hide them. Longer boots you can always add armour. But as i said you should be fine. Laces are the main thing that need covering.

Well my mom is a professional seamstress(retired) and a long time back when I was doing fort re-enactments she made boot covers for my dad so his laces would show on his military fort uniform and she said she might still have them. so I shouldn't need to worry about the laces or zippers showing at all and my boots are thigh high boots.

I don't know exactly where to post this so....http://a2.zassets.com/images/z/1/6/9/6/4/1/1696414-p-2x.jpg This is what I have bought to cover the laces on my boots and with a few tweaks and a little modding and paint it should work out well. What do you think what are you thoughts on this?

That is going to take more then a little modding. Per the CRLs any sports armor must be  so modded as to no longer be recognizable as sports armor. There is more to it, but I am not going to hijack this thread to explain it. If you read up on the CRLs you will see what I am saying.
