Hey guys I'm new to kayaking but I assume if you go out in winter you wear some kind of waders to keep dry , can anyone recommend some that are not too expensive , I'm on a very limited budget right now jumping from temp job to temp job. Anyway like I said I assume waders with thermals under them will keep me semi warm.

For me waiders are only good for one season. I get holes in them etc. I use the cheepest breathable waiders I can find. Layer up under and your good. Wear the belt.

The Magellan Mag 2 waders from Academy are as good as it gets for the money. I have a pair going on their 4th season. They run about $100.

What kind of boots/shoes do you guys wear with those waders?

For waders, I like my Orvis Encounter waders.

I am a HUGE fan/proponent of Simms Riprap shoes for standing/wading Texas rivers. Pair them with Simms Guard socks and you've got as good a wetwading setup as you can buy. Pair them with a good set of stocking-foot waders and you've got the same thing for shallow water wading. I use Orvis Encounter boots (if rubber soles are called for) or Redington boots (if felt soles are called for) on my waders, but like most wading boots, they're bulky.

I just bought the cheap zip-up neoprene wading shoes at Academy as well. I had to buy them 2 sizes bigger than my normal shoe size to wear with the waders.

My boots are rubber soled Cabelas synthetic leather. You should look for slightly used Simms on eBay. I would avoid felt soled boots.
