Default Wading grass flats

Do you guys wear waders when wading the flats or do you just wear shorts? I ask because I just tore my waders and I'm not sure if I should buy another pair.

I wear shorts and neoprene wading boots to protect my feet/ankles when the water is warm enough. If you are ballzy enough to wade in dead winter time, then full waders is a must.

I wear the waders during the winter. No waders during the summer due to the rays. I swap to the kayak.

I wear waders with thick soled boots built in, just cause I don't like walking in grass beds barefoot. I'd wear some kind of foot protection at least, have had to get stitches in my foot from barnacles a bunch.
