You've got a LOT of leeway in what to use as a base- those boots consist basically of gaiters (closest match to these I could find with a quick wikipedia-ing for a picture, look at the guy's legs/feet: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaiter...y_Memorial.jpg )with armour on them going up most of the leg, and a toe-cap, which leaves most of the actual boot hidden. I'd get a short-ish (ankle or calf high) pair of boots that aren't loose at the ankle, and then build the spats on top as a separate piece by either a permanently attached bootcover or able to take on and off with some extra fasteners/elastic.
