Its that time of year again. What 5-7 mm, high top booties are people recommending these days? I'm getting tired of cold feet.
I gotta say, I love my 7mm surf booties.
O'Neill Heat 7mm Round Toe Booties
Again, here's my recommendation: https://www.patagonia.com/product/r5-yulex-round-toe-surf-booties/89431.html?dwvar_89431_color=BLK&cgid=root
Patagonia, 7mil lifetime guarantee has saved me buying another pair when the get ripped at the ankles, or even ripped.

I have a lovely pair of 5, maybe 7mm pair of warm, waterproof booties….Billabong Furnace!
I have last years version of these. They are super warm and have really nice feel and toe mobility on the peddles. The new version has thin reinforced bottoms. My are just socks and need the ocasional aqua seal fixes… these new ones looks super!
I will just add that a pair of wool sox adds another 10 degrees to the comfort range of my booties. Also, thin polypro does the same trick under wetsuits and farmer johns. The downside is the impact on the laundering cycle.
And, the S. Africans think wool socks make booties look even more sexy…
