Footwear on the Camino

The question was:

After much deliberation, I’ve decided to wear trainers/runners rather than boots on the Camino for this time around, mainly because I wear orthotics and my feet, orthotics and boots don’t all get along with each other! Although my feet are very comfortable in my trainers, and I’ve done lots of trail walking in them, I’m concerned about rain and general wet weather.
Does anyone have any suggestions about keeping feet dry on the Camino? I’ve seen products that can be sprayed to improve waterproofing, and have also seen waterproof socks (!) but maybe I’m worrying unnecessarily? Would love to hear people’s ideas!
