    New. Would be very unusual to find anything that large on 'FleaBay,' then (less a death in the family sort of thing) of reasonable condition for any prolonged future use.

    As for boot foot vs neo-booties and extra boots, personal choice. That said, for all but the most sidate river fishing I'd go the later, not the former. For 'banging around' type activities (lots of walking) the former may be the better choice.

    Your call there; question of how you'll use the equipment.

    I'd get these in the XXL- Breathable Emerger Stocking-Foot Waders: Breathable at L.L.Bean

    But if they have a store near you, trying them on would be best. Once you have waders, take them with you to try on the boots.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    You might also take a look at the Fly Shop Closeout site to see if they have anything that would be your size. I have no idea what their return policy, but it would be wise to check out before buying somehing like waders that need to fit to be comfortable in. Fly Fishing Closeouts - " + docTitle + '

    I would never buy waders without trying them on ... As far as boot foot vs stocking foot that's your call; but Fred gave you some excellent points to consider.
