    Once discovering certain styles of surf booties, dive booties were immediately a thing of the past. Nearly eliminate sand n rocks inside them and are swimmable. Limited in choices for me, cuz of size 14's, but the O'niell Superfreak 2mm split toes are amazing, got 3 pairs I rotate using. Previously used the taller ones too, with two velcro straps, worked well, but I like the low profile ones for not looking so odd now. Had tried some hyperflex ones that were size 13's, they actually kept every speck of sand out, but bothered my toes after a few hours cuz of being too small. Then found the ones available in 14's, so switched.

    The Mares have a hard soled bottom and are quite comfortable to walk in. You can ride a bike while wearing These boots. For me the arch support seemed good.

    been thinking about the Mares 6.5 trilastic-https://www.amazon.com/Mares-6-5mm-Trilastic-Dive-Boot/dp/B00NFZXZ68 also someone suggested XS scuba 8mm boots-https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BHPVINA/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A3U23N5O4P9AZ&psc=1. They look tough and arch seems good too. anyone use either of these? Well i went with the XS scuba thugs will give a review with pic's when i get them.
