I have 4 pairs of waders that I use
Two stocking foots, two bootfoots.
The bootfoots are a lot easier to deal with and the disadvantages that are often mentioned when this subject comes up are very minimal.
Bootfoots are almost mandatory in the surf due to the waves pounding sand into every crack and crevice, but a third reason that I really like the bootfoots is for stealth
Sometimes you just want to get out of your vehicle, get your gear together, and go before someone sees you.
I do this a lot..... I have my reasons
Not possible with a stocking foot/ wading boot combination
