Flats shoes or Lightweight boots?

Only wading stuff I have for my feet is water sandals or heavy leather based wading shoes (SIMS, felt - great for very cold water and support, but heavy for long walks).

Since it's warmed up and I have been walking long distances in the sand these boots are kind of heavy and I'd like to use them for freshwater stream fishing only now.

I know, just get "flats shoes", but they don't look like they give much support and I have a weak ankle due to a battle injury long ago, so need the support the stiff SIMS boot gives me. Has anyone been in this position and what did you get?
