How do you keep your feet dry when riding in the rain

I don't, they get used to being wet.

My only suggestion is that, if you expect it will rain, is to take a turn on a winter riding trick. Wrap your feet inside plastic sandwich bags and stick them in your shoes.

Actually, I find that once I'm thoroughly soaked on a rainy ride, I get pretty comfortable.
Fenders, plus booties if it is cold. nmMB1

Ploy propoline medium weight socks from REI/EMS/LL Bean/etc. Kevlar reinforced toes and heels - you can easily get 5 or 6 years out of a set of 3 pair.

Actually they won't keep your feet any drier, but since they don't absorb water they will keep your feet quite toasty and happy. Use them road or MTB and go right through puddles. Another key is to have shoes that will drain and not hold water. The typical thin riding socks won't cut it. Some people use the Gore-tex or neoprene socks, but they're an expensive gimmick in my book and won't fit well in your current shoes.
