I assume you are talking about the hook part of the gutter feet. A rubber boot would cause fit issues with the Yakima Raingutter towers # Y00101. Rubber or plastic can flex and move which could lead to the clamp part of the tower to come off. The hooks are coated so as to avoid metal on metal contact.

If you want you could place protective clear film, # 853-5481, in the desired locations. This is a set of 4 film sections so that works out well since there are 4 towers. But you may need to trim them for the right size and shape.
