Teva boots have been holding up well for me.

Prefer normal-type shoes over booty style with drysuit as they tend to be more comfortable for hiking, in my experience. I look for soles w/ good rubber on wet rocks and good build for hiking. Fiveten Savant (heard they're discontinued) has been good to me except the uppers wear out pretty quickly (lots of aquaseal holding mine together). My experience is Tevas with *Spider Rubber* are even better on wet rocks than Fiveten, but their shoe structure tends not to be as good for hiking (but they're constantly switching up models). I'll probably look at Teva next time as I prefer their rubber and think their uppers tend to wear better and dry faster, but both brands I think are good if you can find a good fit.

With my diving drysuit, any kind of neoprene booty works great and I used seaquest booties. Good thick insulation but crap for running around the shore line. If you want a bomber shoe (more for rafters due to size) then the DUI Rock Boot is about as bomber as it gets and it's designed for drysuits. I think Teva and 5ten make good quality foot wear myself.
On the river, I can abandon who I am and what I've done. However brief it lasts, while on the river I am nothing important and everything insignificant. I am flotsam, and happy to be so.
