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.
