Scuba booties are like neoprene socks, some have a zipper up the side and hard bottoms so you can walk over rocks and other hard surfaces. They protect your feet from cuts, burns and abrasions when walking on rocky beaches, rough boat decks and hot pavement. If you are a cold water scuba diver they will help keep you feet warm. Booties can also prevent blisters from the heel strap of your fins rubbing directly against your heel when walking and swimming.
