Waterproofing Sidi Rain boots

I have learned that my Sidi Rain touring boots leak big time in any rain heavier that a mist. It was my understanding they were supposed to be waterproof. I have tried to contact Sidi a couple times about this issue, but get no response. Since the boots are now 2 years old, I suppose all I can do is try to waterproof them myself. Anyone on the forum found something that works? Aside from the leakage these are nice boots. Nonetheless, no more Sidi products for me.

Thanks. Not surprised, and I'm happy you've had a good experience with Sidi. I have seen similar posts on other sites. Apparently a given pair of Sidi boots can be either very good or they suck big time (I've seen negative posts as on other sites as well). My guess they have poor (or nonexistent) quality control.

So, how do I waterproof a pair that sucks?
