Re: Dive Booties/Socks
Neoprene booties can be good, but 2mm sounds like a thin slick bootie, more of a sock. If the bottom has a harder layer sewn onto it, if the material is a little thicker, you get a little protection with the traction. As mentioned there is zero protection if you back your achille's tendon into a winch, or stub your toes, compared to any deck shoe.
But they will stay warm when wet, without the burden of sea boots.
