In general, that should be a sign that it's time to get new gear. I have a pair of step in boots retired for just that reason. But, in theory, those boots could be repaired. I'm sure a shoe repair shop would love to take a crack at those boots, but you are probably one of those diehard DIY folks. So, with the caveat that I personally chose not to go this route and thus can't vouch for this stuff, The last time we had someone asking about a similar problem, I did some snooping and found this synthetic rubber adhesive that might do the trick. You might want to snoop around on that site. They have a lot of similar epoxy type stuff. The problem is that you want something strong and water repellent and flexible that won't get brittle in cold weather. We know there's a solution because they had to use some kind of glue in the original manufacture.
