What's the best way to mask/obliterate brand logo on black rubber rain boot?

I recently purchased some rubber rain boots (http://www.6pm.com/tretorn-kelly-black). They're black, tall, and shiny. Each boot also bears a glaring, white, largeish Tretorn logo near the top of the boot. This white logo is itself also rubber, placed in in a little rubber rectangle that is affixed seemingly permanently to the rubber of the boot itself. I'm liking the boots and nothing against Tretorn per se, but I generally try not to wear things that have an eye-grabbing brand name on them.
What's the best way to cover up the logo in the most inconspicuous, permanent, and of course, waterproof way possible? Black acrylic paint? (might have weird texture and might chip off?) Black sharpie? (might eventually fade)? Maybe black enamel paint? I think trying to slice it off will probably just look even worse.
If I botch it the first time with some ill-chosen material, it'll probably make for an even bigger cover-up challenge... so I'm interested to hear if there are any paints/inks/materials that seem right for this job before I totally mess up my great new boots!
