It's pretty easy to add one. cut and hem the two front sides of the boot and then create and sew in a tongue. You can add gromits and lace up the two front pieces over the tongue.

Is there a certain type of armor method you are looking for? There is everything: making it with foam, cardboard, metal, fiberglass, craftfoam, clay. I'm just going to link you to the armor section of my tutorial list, then just look through for one that you think would work best. Craftfoam tends to be commonly used and yields nice results.

Can you paint the clothes? You can try working with slightly wet tempra paint (the powdered paint that you add water to) in browns, yellows, reds or greens depending what you are going for. You can also lightly dust it on clothes for a dusty effect.
