not preventing it, but you can spray with with spray rubber and they get resealed....
or go for a pair of Muck boots and never look back

Armourall protectant. apply it tick when you first get them, then another 1-2 times a year depending on how often you use them. and keep them out of the sun when ever possible.

Or like Slacktide said... muck boots, I have a pair going on 3 years and I use them for hunting, and at work. I work on a cattle farm and use them whenever it rains and all winter long wearing them 8hrs a day.

The Baffin hunters looks pretty slick. Description says they're comfort rated down to -40?

Price ain't bad neither:

Hang your waders in the closet so the boots aren't bent at all.
