    Haven’t tried these myself but thought they’d be worth a try. https://www.gubba.co.nz/gubba-silicone-overshoes/ I think you can get them in a boot as well.

    Not "waterproof "but i it is raining or walking through long wet grass none will be apart from a heavy water proof boot.Years ago a mate cut his foot wide open on a creek crossing & we had to get him flown out ,ever since l have carried zip up dive booties & use them when ever the boots get kicked off on a hunt ,they also great for stalking Sika etc in the thick stuff as the flexible sole allows you to feel sticks etc underfoot so makes for nice quiet stalking ,light,dry out quickly & make river crossings a breeze keeping boots /socks etc dry.

    Warehouse usually have Aqua socks for around $12 pair.
    If you want more height then Torpedo 7 have ankle dive booties for $50.
    Search the net for reef shoes, kayak shoes etc. plenty of really light options and in a real jamb they make great fire lighters !

    Neoprene beach shoes or dive boots.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    I have something similar which is a rubber over booty like the Gubba.

    I bought them from a gardening centre. Super lightweight, compact as you can imagine where I just wear socks inside them but I prefer to take a pair of crocs.

    Crocs are more comfy but also more robust for other purposes such as crossing rivers to save getting boots wet
