Welcome to Styleforum pete146. A British winter of Snow? Rain? If either one, none of the above is suitable without rubbers over them, and of the choices you provided, I would go for the second or fourth pair.
Rub some baby powder over the edges and be careful what is making contact with those edges. If they are the vynil edge dressing, they may be chemically reacting to one another in contact, hand lotions, or something else, or just plain giving way to usage.
I own a pair AE Verona & 1 pair of Gucci Bit loafers which are virtually identical to one another so a Thumbs Up for AE to match the look, feel & quality. I also have Bit loafers by Bally which are much lighter in weight; almost feather light and those are good for summer. [[SPOILER]]
Welcome to Styleforumj Jlai1996. I find myself more interested in the womens shoes that lay on the floor behind you. Should those belong to your S.O., then make it a pyjama party. She wears the top and you wear the bottom, or vice versa, as you like.
