That's a tough one - although my new Simms boots are pretty good on both counts depending on the distance hiked. You could remove the boots and swap them out with a sneaker that is 1.5 sizes over and fit on stocking foots (?)

Another possibility is to find high-performance hiking boots that fit over stocking foots and install aluminum cleats which will keep you safe while wading. They make screw-in triangle grips for this purpose (as long as the sole can take screws).
