Has anyone ever seen a neoprene sock, with extended upper part that you can pull up to your knee with a Velcro strap to tighten it to your leg? The idea is you can pull these things on and wear your wading boots - and still have minimal wading capability. I think the upper part was made of rip-stop nylon. Kinda like extra short hip waders, but without the belt loop strap.

I recall seeing these things at a sporting goods store in Minnesota a few years back, but haven't seen them since. Seems like a perfect solution on a hot day.

Not quite. I ordered a pair to those and they didn't fit well at all. You need very skinny legs. Had to send them back. The ones I saw looked more like these:

The one place I found that had carried them said they came from Japan and are no longer available. I've thought about just cutting off and old pair of stocking foot hip waders at the knees and adding some kind of strap.
