Even if you buy boots that say they are water resistant, waterproofing your boots gives them extra protection through the wet season. Waterproof spray is available at most shoe stores and is easy to use. Make sure your boots are dry and then spray them in a well ventilated area making sure that you coat them thoroughly and wait for them to dry before wearing them. Waterproof your boots again before every wet season or any time you see it might be starting to wear off.
