OK so my Chuck high tops do not dry the fastest and they are not trendy. But they do protect better than anything else I know about from oysters except for really heavy hiking boots that are not useful for water sports. And they do dry eventually which is slightly faster than neoprene booties. When laced all the way up they will not suck off in the mud.
So far I haven't seen anything better that I can buy today at any reasonable price. If you have something better I want to know about it. I'm especially interested in my feet being dry sooner.
