    I like that they’re tall, flexible, have no zipper, and are just plain warm and comfy. It would be nice were they to be a bit more rugged in the areas of sole and toe-box, but hey. Anyone know of a source for new ones?

    Thank you—looks like a close match! Pity they don’t currently offer the product in a 5MM flavor.

    Thank you, yes, 5MM in the Freedive socks, 3MM in the kevlar-soled ones. I'm fairly sure the booties I have are 5MM and the soles are fairly robust, with material perhaps similar to kevlar. I chatted with a nice rep at Mako and I'll have to think about it.
