Anything will leak if subjected to enough pressure. Most waterproof boots have a waterproof liner, but it is best to keep renewing the “durable waterproof layer” with something like Nikwax. (Don’t use anything with oil on goretex.)

Waterproof boots come with such a “durable waterproof“ outer layer applied but it only lasts a few months. Without that external layer the waterproof layer can get overwhelmed.

I also have some of those overboots, which sort of do the same thing. I only have used them once, when I knew it was going to rain all day.

I have seen riders standing there complaining about boots leaking when they had their pants tucked into the boots and water was running down their pants into the boots. Same with gloves.
