I replaced mine with one from Hobby Lobby.

License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. Man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote.

Zippers are fairly standard items, and they come in a handful of sizes. You -probably- need a #10. That's a big one, so boat canvas makers might be a good place.

You can get one online here:

A shoe/boot repair shop should have one AND be able to stitch it in for you
