Wow, so many replies. Well I'd love to have gortex booties, but cost of custom installation can't be justified on an older base model suit.

Earlier I did buy the only local XL NRS latex socks, but the pricey pkg only came with one sock even though the label says socks. One would assume it's talking about a pair if there's an "S" at the end. Apparently that's how they're all packaged. Yeah, I could pay for rush shipment of another "sock", but that the overall price was really adding up for 2 measly pieces of latex - hence my idea with the latex hazmat boots.

Though I know there's some risk in using unknown latex material, I would at least test it extensively before using it in cold water. I hadn't considered the larger diameter of the hazmat boot top.

Thanks for all the advice.
