    wetsuit booties

    What is a good wetsuit bootie to wear? I'm getting ready to get me a wetsuit, and need to pick up a good set of boots to wear with it. I want something comfy, stylish, and warm. What do you recommend?

    Nothing matches a good set of dive booties. You can get different styles, and thicknesses. IST makes some good ones.

    I was looking at a set of Slippery Syphon boots. They look kinda like dive boots, but still have a little bit of good looks too. Not sure how warm they will keep my feet though. Any experience with these? I want something with a semi-hard sole for rocks, but mainly to be warm.

    I use Oceanic Neo Classic Boots. Get boots with a good thick sole for walking around on.

    Whichever one's you get, make sure they have something that covers the zipper, so that it doesn't scratch your hull...or find some without zippers.

    Leisure Pro is an online scuba gear store. I don't use them a lot since they take away business from the local scuba store, but I also want to save money just like everyone else. I only use Leisure Pro for the cheaper gear like boots, gloves, and wetsuits. I bought my boots from a local scuba store in Austin because they were th same price as Leisure Pro.
