High Cut Or Low Cut
Much like any boot you will buy, you have an option of high cut and low cut. The main difference between the two is that one offers more ankle protection. If you are carrying a lot of scuba equipment, and you have a long way to go, then a high-cut boot will be the way to go. The high cut will give you more ankle protection, and you have less risk of twisting your ankle or straining it when you are on the move. If you are not walking very far with your scuba equipment, then a low-cut boot is fine.
When you are thinking about low cut vs. high cut, you also want to think about the comfort of the boot. A higher-cut boot will have more contact with your body. This may offer extra support and could keep the boot in place, but it could also cause more friction and rub against your ankle. A low-cut boot will also be smaller and lighter. If you need to pack up your gear for transport, or are worried about the weight of the boots, then a low-cut boot is the way to go.
