Well, not "all" neoprene footwear

It sounds like you are talking about waders with stocking feet, designed to go inside boots (that's my take on your use of the term "compression failure"). Paddling boots have no such issues, since the neoprene never gets "squashed" that way. Paddling boots have a structural sole which bears your weight, rather than neoprene fabric.
