    Waterproof the bottom of your mountain bike shoes

    Has anyone found an effective way to waterproof the bottom of their mountain bike shoes?
    - water coming in from the clips area.

    Thanks
    Mike

    Shimano has a water proof seal in theirs.
    Try maybe adding an adhesive rubber flap under the sole insert.
    or apply something like a silicon sealant between the clean and bottom of shoe, and around the bolts and all that.

    Thats all I can think of off the top of my head.

    The shims that come with Crank Brothers pedals do an excellent waterproofing job.
