I'm going to be in Rome and London for almost 2 weeks in December this year with my mom. I'm trying to start thinking of what I'm going to pack, mostly shoes and outerwear as I'm going to be packing light in case I need to help my mom with her bag. I would like to limit myself to 2 pairs of shoes / boots. I'm thinking for clothing I will be packing mostly navy, charcoal and burgundy. We will mostly be sightseeing but might go to the theatre and a concert or two. The shoes below are the ones I own that I'm considering. I'm also still looking for a pair of low ankle boots to replace an old pair so that might be another option. These are my choices:

Frye lug sole wingtips: very comfortable but heavy. I actually own 2 pairs - black and chocolate brown.

Frye Melissa oxfords in bordeaux. Comfortable, but I would probably want to add a rubber sole to these if I packed them.

Stuart Weitzman Loafers in burgundy - comfortable but I'm not sure if they would be good if it's rainy.

Cole Haan Black riding boots - comfortable but I'm not sure about packing tall boots?

Via Spiga brown riding boots - about the same comfort level as the Cole Haan pair.

Most of my other boots are winter boots geared for snow like Sorels or other insulated boots that I'm thinking are going to be too hot?
