Looking for:
-2mm max thickness
-low rise
-plain (not split-toe) models
-ideally no straps - but these are easy to cut off
-the least unnecessary rubber possible as rubber gets in the way of feeling the board... and creates hot spots between board's straps and skin. Of course, rubber is there for protection but there's protection and there's less-is-more balance.
Out of all of the models I listed, I'd say Prolimit's Raider shoe meets your requirements the best. I've had a good experience with their booties and I really like their OCL last fit.
