I took a pair of trainers that had a couple hundred miles on them and sprayed the mesh parts with a couple coats of spray truck bed liner, which is basically a thin coating of rubber. I also made them into screw shoes for traction in the snow/ice. They are not totally waterproof, but they are good enough, with a good pair of merino wool running socks, my feet might get damp at worst running in several inches of snow.
There are a few specialized winter/waterproof running shoes, but I didn't want to go through the bother trying to find one that fits, plus, they're expensive.
