I'm not sure if my experience qualifies, but ....
I sometimes wear a pair of cowboy boots. They are a pair of ranch style, waterproof boots, and they are exactly that--waterproof. They have kept my feet dry in the heaviest downpour out on the road. My rain suit pulls down over the top, so that keeps the water from pouring in.
I recently bought a pair of Tourmaster Response Short Cuts. Great boot, obviously shorter than the cowboy boots, but much stiffer with better ankle protection, and very easy on the feet--both on and off the bike. I have not had a chance to test them in the rain, but I am sure that if I had an accident, these boots would stay on my feet, whereas the cowboy boots would probably get yanked off.
