What's a good pair of waders for N. TX/OK springtime waters? I'm talking about water that's not ice cold, but to chilly for cutoffs. I have a pair of Cabelas neoprene , but they are too heavy. I'm thinking something lightweight, and as puncture proof as possible. I want bootless since I'll be wearing tennis shoes.

Simms makes the best waders but cost the most.
The Magellan Mag 2 waders from Academy are great waders for what you describe. I have a pair and like them.

Magellan looks like the wader of choice. I think I'll try a pair as soon as I can figure out what size.

Magellans are cheap. Frogg Toggs are cheap. Expect one year max....if that.

I am a full time guide wade fishing year round and duck hunting in ny waders thru duck season. I am on year 6 of my Simms using them over 100 trips a year.

I also like the Magellan's stockingfoot breathable waders, but they only go up to size 12. You will probably have to go up a size or two because of socks, but you can try them in the store. I only use them during the winter time, but they have lasted for at least 40 outings where I walked at least 1/2 Mile each time over 3 years, without any leaks. I got them for $50, so I feel like I got my money's worth already.
