A Modest Modification...
I like the comfort of wearing sole-less wetsuit boots with swim fins, I hate walking barefoot across rocks and gravel getting in and out of the water, and I sure don't like buying new boots every few months because I wear out the heels walking across the aforementioned rocks and gravel.
After wearing out the heel area of my latest pair of O'Neill booties, I bought a cheap pair of rubber flip flops, cut out a portion of the bottoms, and bonded it to the damaged area of each boot.
I'll do this to the next pair of boots before I wear them!
