Wouldn't you also have to remove the original paint first? The irremovable plastic parts in the way would make that complicated anyway...

Or you could just repaint them in a high-grade enamel and apply a tough, weatherproof and flexible clear coat for protection.
--- I would assume i would be able to remove the metal parts in some way or form. If it is possible, powder coating the heel cup and whatever else that is stricly metal is what can be possible, and then just bc/cc or just the enamal ss paint the parts that have plastic around or in them. They do make adhesion promoters and flex agents you can add to the paint to aid in the durability. It's what i have to do to front and rear bumpers of cars so rocks don't chip and people who bump your car doesn't crack the paint.
