Have to agree with the purofort's, wear them every day on the farm here. I think thermal ones can be got too. Have a pair of bekina wellies which are very comfortable too but a small bit heavier.

flex sole for sand and rigid sole for rocks. flex sole gives more comfort until you walk on sharp rocks.
