    The biggest factor for me that trumps all else is drying time. It’s a PITA, especially when on travel. Floaty feet is an annoyance but you learn to manage. By perfectly sizing the boot you can minimize air getting trapped, but if you use different amounts of exposure protection in cold/warmer waters, there’s a limit to that.

    One drawback of neoprene socks that hasn’t been mentioned is squeeze. I use rock boots which helps prevent floaty feet. But if not careful, a tight fit can prevent adequate equalization with painful consequences. Oversizing the sock a bit does the trick.
