I would go with a Kokatat Gore-Tex model, GMER/Idol/or their front entry if you want simple, pretty sure they will do a neoprene neck mod for you as well. The quality and customer service is top notch, although repairs/gasket replacement do seem to be more expensive lately. I would think the booties failing is more related to what shoes you wear over them, if you have a full high top/boot like a 5.10 canyoneer I doubt the booties would be an issue.
Have had a GMER for over a decade now, finally going to replace it this off season. I cannot see myself going away from Kokatat but if I did it would be for the Sweet interglactic suit:
Not sure they would do a neoprene gasket though and it is very kayak specific. Judging by the profile pic some of that may not be needed for your uses
