If you're too cheap for waterproof boots (as I've been), there are waterproof socks. I haven't tried mine out yet, but they seemed pretty effective when I handwashed them after I got them. http://www.sealskinz.com/ is the company, I bought mine through http://www.aerostich.com/ while I was ordering some other stuff ... $27 is a lot for socks, but I figure it's just one pair to wear on the days I bike to work in the rain.

The fact of the matter is that I have waterproof boots, but there are levels of immersion in which no amount of "waterproofing" will help you.

The kind of rain we had this morning, where the wind is driving it into every crevice imaginable, will absolutely get into your boots. It is telling that my right sock was much more wet that my left, as the wind was driving on my right side on the way in.

Other than having oneself laminated, there's really no amount of raingear that will ever be 100%.
