This shot of my shapely pins should dissuade you....
Those are Keen mids (they leaked 2nd time out).
Not used them myself, but plenty of orienteers use some or other flavour.
Clicky for a selection...
Must admit to basically never getting stuff coming in myself either. (Even when heather bashing.).
Suppose it must be down to some quirk of walking style
Inov-8 do gaiters, http://www.inov-8.com/New/Global/Product-View-DebrisGaiter-32.html?L=26 and also a sock/gaiter all in one combo, http://www.inov-8.com/New/Global/Product-View-Debrisoc-38.html?L=26
Both have thin, but very durable elastic that goes under the feet and as it's thin then you just ensure it's between the tread on the sole. It can wear through though, and they sell replacements at £1.
OR Flex Tex
I use the flex tex ones, more a proper gaiter than debris , quite a close fit and fairly water resistant which might not be what your after.
They also do a more waterproof one OR Salamander
