Booties vs. Booty

The word "booties" is plural. So if you purchase a "pair of booties"...does that mean you want four?
The word "booty" is singular, but it could also mean treasure or the other kind of "booty" if you know what I mean :)

And if you include the word "some" in the sentence, or remove the word "pair"...it really changes the meaning.

So if you are buying scuba diving booties, how would you say it?

[Choose #5] BOOTS for me. I don’t wear panties and I don’t wear booties.

[Choose #1] It’s kind of like a pair of pants. Have you ever seen a single pant. Yes, a single pant leg, but that is only a part of a pair of pants. Huh?

[Choose #5] Please sell me these 5mm boots. (and yes it’s plural, because most of us have 2 feet and want 1 boot for each)

[Choose #5] ...’boots’ sounds better, ’booties’ sounds childish, and ’booty’ is already taken by a body part or sunken treasure as far as I know.

[Choose #5] I would like a pair of BOOBIES. So you mean that you pay for the 1st pair /2nd pair is free? Still looking for a nice rack to hang my gear onto for XMAS.

[Choose #3] I would like to "HAVE" some booty. That way if it is money you’re not buying it. If it is the other I wouldn’t pay for it either.
