Jim i work in  tackle shop and get to see lots of waders and the faults they develop most boot foot waders end up leaking  at the boot usually the boot cracks, i have been though lots of waders and this year i have settled on a pair of snowbee stockingfoot neoprene waders  and i am using the snowbee rock hopper boots the boots are quick to put on and  have  a zip fastening at the side they also have steel spikes in the sole that make them totally non slip i can walk over bladderwrack covered rocks or up a steep grass covered seawall without slipping or fear of slipping , i have not had that much of a chance to wear them this year ( its been too warm) but i had them on today and they were great.

I also have the rockhopper wellington boots i have worn them a lot seatrout fishing on the rocks, wildfowling under a pair of waterproof trousers and in the snow and ice of last winter, you feel invincible in them everyone else was slipping about on the ice and i was walking about thinking "whats the problem"

Here is a link to the waders and boots

Agree the best are stocking foot. I had a pair for several years and have since tried boot foot and they aren’t as good. You can wear traditional wader boots or jus go for a pair of cheap oversize wellies to fit. Can’t comment on Snowbee.
