I have fixed them with shoe goo or liquid electrical tape. Takes a couple of coats but will work if there not all the way through.

You also might try getting some silicone spray lube (the kind that is used for door seals, etc.) and spray the boots for a couple of days as often as they will take the lube. It should soften them up enough to keep cracking from going any further.
