Glycerol (glycerine) may help, soften them a bit, but needs re-application from time to time. Talcum powder is also a preservative for rubber, but if they're cracked, it's probably too late. I've seen black sealant coating used to some effect, but the corners do get bad first, as they're stressed there.
