The very first thing to check is the drains at the bottom of the door.
These little, often over looked things can cause a myriad of trouble in the wet footwell leak department. Be sure they are clear.
After that, check the rocker panel drains too.
Then, look for trouble in the windshield seal. Have you had (or a previous owner perhaps) a windshield glass replaced?

Beneath, at the bottom of the rocker panel. They usually appear as bumps between the two panels (inner and outer rocker) where they come together.
